New feature: Two-factor authentication

Updated on:

I'm excited to announce that we just launched a new feature to make Less Annoying CRM even more secure: Two-factor authentication!

If you're not familiar with two-factor authentication (or 2fa as it's called), it's a way to make it harder for hackers to get into your account. Normally when you log in, you are asked for an email address to identify yourself, and a password to verify your identity (that's the "first factor"). With 2fa, you also need a "second factor" which is a temporary code we'll send you. So even if a hacker steals your password, they still won't be able to log in to your account unless they have also somehow figured out a way to intercept your 2fa codes.

For years we've supported 2fa indirectly because you could log in via Google, and Google has their own 2fa system, but now we have our own built-in 2fa system so you can get this extra level of protection without using Google login. If you'd like to learn more, the video above will walk you through the whole thing.
