Two-factor Authentication

Content is machine translated from English by Phrase Language AI.

Two-factor Authentication, also called Two-step Authentication or 2FA, increases the security of a user profile. The profile is linked via Google Authenticator or another compatible application to a mobile phone.

When signing in to a Phrase profile, username, password and a security code that is generated on the mobile phone must be provided.

Two-factor authentication has to be enabled on user level. It cannot be enforced for all users by an Administrator.

To set up Two-factor Authentication in the Phrase Localization Suite, follow these steps:

  1. Install Google Authenticator application to a phone.

  2. Select Settings/Profile from the profile icon at the top right of the screen.

  4. Click Generate QR code and scan the presented QR code with a phone.

    The application displays a six digit code.

  5. Enter the code in the Code field.

  6. Click Enable two-factor authentication.

    The profile is linked to the application on the phone.

In case of issues with the authenticator application, refer to its documentation for troubleshooting (for example, the Google Authenticator help center).
