If you want to keep your Infinity data even more secure, then we encourage you to enable 2FA (two factor authentication) located in the ‘My Profile’ section of your Infinity dashboard.
Next, click on ‘Security’ in the left sidebar of your dashboard and then on the ‘Enable Now’ button in the 2FA field.
In the next window, you’ll need to confirm access to your account or re-authenticate by entering your password. Once your password is confirmed, you’ll have 30 minutes to enable 2FA before being asked to authenticate your account once again.
This re-authentication process is important because it avoids someone else activating 2FA in your place.
Once you click on the ‘Confirm’ button, you’ll get a list of recovery codes which are used in case you lose your primary 2FA device or cannot receive second-factor authentication code.
You can download, print, or copy them to another device of your choice. Keep them secure and make sure to save them on any other device than your primary one, because this will help you restore your account in case of emergency.
In the next step, you’ll need to scan the QR code on your screen either with your phone or by using a Chrome extension.
Most phones come with a built-in QR code scanner nowadays, but just in case yours doesn’t, you can download one of the many apps available on Google. You can also use the Authenticator Chrome extension on your computer.
Once the QR code is scanned, you will get a 6-digit number that you’ll enter in the corresponding field.
The last step is to click on the ‘Enable’ button. In the last window, you’ll have two options: either two disable 2FA or to view your recovery codes once again.
You’ll also receive an email with the link to your recovery codes.
