How to Set Up Two Factor Authentication (2FA) Print

  • 1

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an important tool in protecting your account from unwanted access. Setting up 2FA on OneControlCenter can be done in a few easy steps!

  1. Begin by logging into OneControlCenter.
  2. Once logged in, click your name in the top left and choose Manage Account. This page can also be accessed directly here.

  3. On the Manage Account page, change to the Multi-Factor Authentication tab.

There are currently 3 different options for multi-factor authentication that can be used to secure your account. You can set up as many of these as you'd like.

  • Time-based One-time Password (TOTP)
    • This is the most common type of 2FA. It uses an app to generate a six-digit code to verify your login.
    • Using an app such as Google Authenticator or Authy, scan the QR code to add a code generator for OneControlCenter. Enter the 6-digit code that it gives you into the box, then click Enable MFA.
  • Yubikey OTP
    • The YubiKey is a hardware authentication device manufactured by Yubico to protect access to computers, networks, and online services that supports one-time passwords, public-key cryptography, and authentication, and the Universal 2nd Factor and FIDO2 protocols.
    • Insert your Yubikey into your device, then select the Input Box. Tap your Yubikey, then click Validate to confirm.
  • WebAuthn
    • WebAuthn is a specification that allows servers to integrate with the strong authenticators now built into devices, like Windows Hello or Apple’s Touch/Face ID.
      • You can also add additional Yubikeys via this method as well.
    • With your device ready, enter a name for your key, then click Use Security Key. You will be prompted to verify your device, and then the key will be added to your OneControlCenter account.
    • Multiple keys can be added to your account if you have multiple devices that you log into OneControlCenter with.
