Why Two-Factor-Authentication (2FA)

Two Factor Authentication allows you to add an extra layer of security to your account.


By supplying us with your mobile phone number, we can send you an extra authentication token every time you managed to successfully log in with your TestingBot username and password.
The token you receive on your mobile device will then have to be entered after logging in on TestingBot in order to access your TestingBot account.


This way there's an extra security layer; if your credentials ever got compromised the attacker would also need access to your mobile device in order to log in on TestingBot.

Enable 2FA

Log into your TestingBot account and go to My Account.
At the bottom of this page, you will find a enable 2FA link.


To enable the 2FA, fill in the phone number of your mobile device. Make sure to enter the country code as well. For example, for a US mobile device, make sure the number starts with "+1"

Once that's done, we'll send a random digit to your mobile device through SMS text.
Fill in this random digit on the enable 2FA page to complete this process.


Once this process has been completed, the next time you'll log in you will be required to fill in the random token we'll send to you after logging in with email/password.

Google Authenticator

It's possible to use Google Authenticator to generate the 2FA token required to log in.

Simply scan the QR code to start generating these tokens. The next time you'll log in, you can use the token provided by Google Authenticator to log in via 2FA.

Disabling 2FA

Log into your TestingBot account and go to My Account.
At the bottom of this page, you will find a disable 2FA link.
