You can add another layer of data protection to your account using Two-factor authentication in Productive. It takes only a couple minutes to set up, and it's easy to use.
- A smartphone
- An authentication app installed (Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator, Authy...)
Open Productive on the computer, go to Settings and open Security, select Turn on 2-FA.
You'll see a QR code that you can scan using the authentication app you've installed. When you scan the code, the app on your phone will generate a six-digit number. Now, go back to the Productive app on the computer.
After you've scanned the code, click Next, and the system will ask you to enter your Productive password and the six-digit code shown on your phone (displayed in blue).
When you've entered the codes and the password, click Next.
Now, a set of five recovery codes will appear. Copy the codes and save them in a secure location.
After enabling two-factor authentication, you'll be logged out from Productive on all of your devices. To log in again, open the authentication app you've previously used and enter the six digit code from the app.
If you can't use the app in that moment, you can use one of the recovery codes you've previously saved.
That's it! Now your account is even more secure.
