Storyfier Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi-factor authentication (MFA), also known as two-factor authentication (2FA), strengthens security by verifying a user’s identity. It uses multiple methods of authentication from independent categories of credentials. 

Activating MFA will only allow the user access to Storyfier after entering a 6-digit authentication code via an authenticator app.

This is only applicable to Storyfier users who have registered with their email and password with Horangi.

Pre-requisites

  1. Storyfier account that uses email & password authentication
  2. An authenticator app (ex. Google Authenticator, Authy, Aegis Authenticator)
