Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a method of confirming a user's identity by using a combination of two different factors. An example of this would be withdrawing money from an ATM; only the correct combination of a bank card and a PIN allows the transaction to be carried out. Two other examples are to supplement a user-controlled password with a one-time password (OTP) or code generated or received by an authenticator (e.g. a security token or smartphone) that only the user possesses.
Bookstackk provides users with two-factor authentication through the use of the OATHAuth extension. To activate two-factor authentication for your account visit Special:Two-factor authentication and follow the steps provided. Once two-factor authentication has been enabled on your account it will be required for all subsequent login attempts.
