Two factor authentication

Two-factor authentication can be used to add an extra level of security to ensure that your SeekTable accound is not accessed by an unauthorised third party that may have been able to discover, for example, an access key. Through two-factor authentication, users can access the SeekTable using their email, access key, and a security token provided by the Google Authenticator app (or similar app that implements TOTP according to the RFC 4226).
