Techinline announced earlier today the introduction of a two-factor authentication login process. This improvement was made to comply with PCI regulations and FFIEC’s mandate concerning identity protection.
Two-factor authentication is a security process in which the user provides two means of identification. It is believed that two-factor authentication could drastically reduce the threat of online identity theft and fraud because the victim’s password would no longer be enough to give a thief access to their information.
How It Works:
The two-factor authentication process essentially will now involve two steps for accessing a Techinline account:
Step 1: The Techinline account holder must first provide their username and password in the Techinline login form
Step 2: Once the account information is provided, a randomly generated Secure Code will be automatically emailed to the account holder. This Secure Code must be entered into a corresponding field on the Techinline login page in order to complete the verification process.
Who Is Effected
The current login process of simply providing a username and password to log into the Techinline system will remain as the default login method. The two-factor authentication will only be activated for those account holders who would like to take advantage of this new development. We ask all users who’re interested in activating the 2-factor authentication to get in touch with us and request this change.
