Two-factor authentication (TFA) is when an additional layer of security is applied to the process of logging into a website or service online.
Using a username and password, together with a piece of information that only the user knows, makes it harder for potential intruders to gain access and steal a person’s personal data or identity.
We use the Passcode as this unique piece of data, which you use in conjunction with your login name (e-mail) and your password.
Unlike your login name and password, which do not change unless you change them, the Passcode is a unique one-time code and a new one is generated each time you login.
The default is to receive your Passcode via e-mail, however if it is more convenient you can change this to a text message – here is how you do that.
We take online security extremely seriously. Utilising solutions such as our Passcode is just one measure we have put in place to protect your personal data – identity and portfolio details.
