The following is a brief summary of MYOB's implementation of two factor authentication.
Adding two-factor authentication (2FA) to your account improves your security by making it harder for other people to access your data.
2FA is to be mandatory for all MYOB software users, to comply with new industry standards.
If you haven't set up two-factor authentication (2FA) but you're being asked for a code when you sign in, it means you've been automatically registered for email 2FA. If you don't want to use email for 2FA, you can switch to a mobile app instead through the Security Centre.
What is it?
2FA is a secure sign-in process that combines something you know (your password) with something you have (your phone or tablet, or your email account).
2FA adds a second line of defence to keep your data secure.
How does it work?
After you sign in using your MYOB email and password, you'll be asked for an authentication code.
- If you've set up email 2FA an email with a code will be sent to your inbox automatically, and you can copy the code in.
- If you've set up app 2FA you'll open your app and copy in the code.
These unique authentication codes are generated just for you when you sign in, so you never have to worry about losing or forgetting them.
