Two Factor Authentication

From Runner How-To Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Two-Factor Authentication (TFA) includes an added layer of security that requires not just a username and password, but input from a physical token as well (in this case, your phone). TFA affirms you are the intended user and protects from potential intruders attempting to use your account.

All Runner users with admin status and/or access to sensitive content (classification: “secret”) are now required to log in with TFA.
