Training Post users can activating multi-factor authentication (MFA) for additional security. With MFA activated, each time you log in you will be asked for a short numerical code from your authenticator app before you can proceed to use the system.
We implement multi-factor authentication via apps such as Authy or Google Authenticator, and to begin you will need to have one of these apps installed.
You can activate MFA selecting the user menu avatar at the right-hand side of the top menu. Click on “Multi-Factor Authentication” from the drop down menu, then select the “ADD MULTI-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION” button.
Using your Authy app then select the + icon.
You will then be prompted to scan your QR code. Do so by selecting the “SCAN QR CODE” button which brings up your scanner. Line this up with the QR code presented on your Training Post Provider page.
Use the default given name or change it if you wish then select the “SAVE” button.
You will then be presented with a 6 digit code. Enter this code into the text field on the Training Post Authentication page then select the “SAVE” button to activate.
Using Google Authenticator
Using the Google Authenticator app select the “GET STARTED” button.
Then select the “SCAN A QR CODE” button. Line up the scanner with the QR code presented on your Training Post Provider page.
You will then be given a 6 digit code add that code into the text field on the Training Post Authentication page then select the “SAVE” button to activate.
Once confirmed you have successfully added the multi-factor authentication. When you next login to your Training Post Provider dashboard you will be asked for a 6 digit code, open up your chosen Authentication app and enter the code to gain access.
If you wish to remove your MFA from you account this can be done from the same page one you are logged in.
If you cannot log in because of an MFA issue (for example if you have lost your phone) then you must request a manager or owner of the system remove the MFA device for you.
