Time Based Tokens

Fresh Web Hosting Time Based Tokens work with any OATH software such as Google Authentication for Android, or Apple’s OATH Token App for example. Once activated, users will be required to provide a second form of Authentication that only they have access to. This Authentication comes in the form of a 6 digit passcode that expires every 30 seconds.

How does it work?

Upon initial signing once Token Based Two Factor Authentication is actived, users will be presented with a QR code to scan using their smartphone or tablet device. Once this is scanned, their device will then store authorization to generate a pass code and authentication to your WHMCS installation.  Every 30 seconds, a new 6 digit code will be generated through their OATH application of choice which will be used as their second form of Authentication during login to your WHMCS.                    

Why do I need this?

Many individuals tend to use the same password for all of their login points. In the event that a malicious users gains access to one login of you or your staff, they could potentially gain access to all other login-required sites – Like your Fresh Web Hosting Account.  Two-Factor Authentication puts a stop to that by requiring users who succesfully login in with a user & password combintation to use  a physical device they posses for futher verification.

If you have any inquires regarding the setup on your mobile then please email support@freshwebhosting.com.au or phone 02 49845749 we are more then happy to help install and setup the application.
