With the rapid rise of cyber crime, Aucto has implemented Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to increase the layers of security for your account. While this feature is completely optional to users, we highly recommend activating this feature on your account. The following guide will provide you with a step-by-step walk-through on how to activate this for your account.
Step #1 – Navigate to Your Dashboard
The first step to activate 2FA on your account is to navigate to your account dashboard. This can be done from any page on the website if you are currently logged into your account. Simply mouse over to the My Account button in the top right corner and from the drop-down list click on the Dashboard option. This should be the first option in the drop-down list.
Step #2 – Other Settings
The next step is to navigate to and click the other settings button. The other settings button is in the bottom right-hand corner underneath the heading Security and Notifications
Step #3 – Turn On Two-Factor Authentication
After navigating to the other settings page, you will see an on-off switch next to the term Two Factor Authentication. If this setting is turned off, please turn this setting on. If the setting is turned on, please verify the phone number listed below is correct.
Step #4 – Verifying Phone Number
After adding your phone number and clicking verify you will see the below screen. The phone number you entered in the previous step will receive an SMS message with a 6-digit code. Enter the code into the bar and click verify. If you do not receive the verification code you can request a new code after 60 seconds, before requesting the new verification code please verify that the phone number is correct.
Step #5 – Confirmation
The final step in the verification process after completing the previous steps is to click the blue submit button in the bottom right corner. After clicking the blue submit button you will see the switch next to Two-Factor Authentication turned on with the phone number you had entered.
You will now have two-factor authentication enabled on your account. After activating this feature upon logging in you will receive a SMS verification message to the entered phone number with a verification code.
