By default, an e-mail address and a password are required to log into an eTermin account. You can also use multi-factor authentication to make access to your eTermin account more secure.
To enable multi-factor authentication, go to Account > Multifactor Authentication in your account. Here you can decide whether the two-factor authentication should run via Google Authenticator or via email with a one-time password.
If two-factor authentication is active, it applies to both admin and user logins.
Note: Only one of the two variants can be used for multi-factor authentication.
To use two-factor authentication via Google Authenticator, first download the Google Authenticator app to your device. Then click on Activate in your eTermin account.
In the pop-up window that appears, you will see a QR code that you have to scan using the app.
To do this, open the Google Authenticator app on your device. If you are opening the app for the first time, press Get started.
You can then press Scan a QR code to scan the QR code from your eTermin account. Alternatively, enter the code manually by pressing Enter a setup key.
Once the code has been scanned or entered, eTermin is added as an account. A numeric code will appear, which you must enter for verification. After entering and clicking on Activate, the two-factor authentication via Google Authenticator is ready.
If you have then logged into your eTermin with your email address and password, you will be prompted to enter the authentication code from the Google Authenticator app. By clicking OK, the code is confirmed and you can access your eTermin account.
If you want to use the "E-Mail" variant for two-factor authentication, click Activate. You will then be prompted to enter a one-time password after logging in with your email address and password. The one-time password will be emailed to you at the email address you provided.
