Two-Factor Authentication

Babelway now offers two-factor authentication for users to login to the Babelway platform. If you wish to enable two-factor authentication (TFA) on your account, please contact us at support@babelway.local.

Two Factor Authentication is an extra layer of security that is known as “multi factor authentication” that requires not only a password and username but also something that a user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand – such as a physical token. For Babelway, we have integrated Google Authenticator that will give you a 6-digit code to enter upon login.

To setup TFA, follow these steps:

  1. Contact our support team at support@babelway.local and tell us you want to enable TFA
  2. Download the Google Authenticator app on your smart phone, either IOS or Android.
  3. Once enabled on your account, you’ll be prompted to enable TFA with your Google Authenticator app upon login
    1. Go to your app and choose ‘setup’ or add account ‘+’
    2. Either enter the Secret code or scan the QR code
  4. You’re setup!

From this point, whenever you login to your account, you’ll be prompted to enter a 2-step verification code:

You’ll access the Google Authenticator app on your phone, which will give you a time sensitive 6 digit code to enter in.

This ensures that only the person with the linked authenticator app (you) can access your account, making your Babelway platform even more secure.
