We at KeepSolid do our best to make your online experience as secure as possible. That’s why our team keeps implementing a list of security measures in place to protect your data both inside and outside our app. Among such measures is two-factor authentication (also called 2FA) to safeguard your KeepSolid VPN Unlimited account.
In this piece, we answer the following questions:
Let’s answer all your whats and whys!
The main idea of this security process is to make users employ two different types of authentication to boost verification reliability to an even more advanced level. As a result, two-factor authentication becomes a rock-solid shield to safeguard user’s accounts, credentials, and all the important data inside the app.
Obviously, 2FA is way more secure in comparison with a single-factor one. Why? In a nutshell, the SFA method is something you know (for example, your password). This information is quite easy to hack through the network. The 2FA method, in turn, is something you have (for example, a secret code sent to your email or smartphone). This security measure is possible to hack only if somebody physically takes away that something you have. Sounds quite impossible and too hard.
Two-factor authentication helps you to add an extra layer of security to your profile so that no unauthorized third parties can access your device or private accounts. Since in present-day reality, a single password is not enough to protect your data, you should definitely take 2FA seriously and give it a shot. So, why don’t you try our VPN solution with two-factor authentication?
If you wonder what 2FA means in the context of our application, we’ll try to make things clear. Two-factor authentication in our app helps you to make your VPN Unlimited account even more protected by adding a second way to authenticate your identity aside from your password. The available types of 2FA for our VPN are as follows:
Note: After turning on the 2FA feature, you will be automatically logged out of your KeepSolid VPN Unlimited profile on all your devices. From that exact moment, when signing in, you will be required to pass the chosen two-factor authentication in addition to entering your password.
Add an extra layer of security to your VPN account right away!
This type of two-factor authentication can be set up via your smartphone. All you have to do is to get any Authenticator app (like Google Authenticator) on your smartphone, link it to your account, and then use a six-digit login passcode to log in to our KeepSolid VPN Unlimited app.
To turn on 2FA based on the authenticator app, you should do as follows:
Turn on the Authenticator App option via the Two-Factor Authentication tab.
Verify your account.
Run your Authenticator app on your smartphone and scan the popped-up QR code from your KeepSolid User Office.
Fill in the provided six-digit authentication code from the app to the authentication code field in your KeepSolid User Office.
This type of two-factor authentication can be set up via your email. Choosing the code by email option, you will be getting a super-secure verification code to your email each time you try to sign in to your account on a new device. To enable this 2FA option, you should do as follows:
Turn on the Code by Email option via the Two-Factor Authentication tab.
Verify your account.
