How do I enable and activate two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication ensures one more level of security for your Plarium account. With two-factor authentication enabled, every time you log in you'll need to authenticate the login using a special code we'll send to a second location - either an email address or a mobile device. We highly recommend you enable this extra step of security.

Note: Two-factor authentication is available starting from version 6.4.0 of Plarium Play. After you enable two-factor authentication on any device, you can no longer log into devices using an older version of the platform.

To enable and activate two-factor authentication, do the following:

  • Make sure that your email address is confirmed. You can read how to do so here.
  • Go to your Profile

  • Enter your current password when requested
  • A window will pop up, asking for your preferred method of authentication. Pick one (either email or the Google Authenticator phone app) and follow the instructions the window provides

 

If you opt for Google Authenticator:

  • Choose Google Authenticator and click ‘Next’

*For security reasons, it's better to print these backup codes instead of saving them on your computer or taking a screenshot of them

  • In the final step, click ‘Log Out'. When you log back in, two-factor authentication will be already active.

Google Authenticator is one of the most secure ways to protect Plarium accounts.

 

If you opt for email authentication:

  • Choose 'Email address' and click ‘Next’

If you use several Plarium Play accounts, you will have to enable two-factor authentication for each account separately.
