How Two-Factor Authentication Works
By enabling Two-Factor Authentication, users must enter not only their regular password but also a one-time password (OTP) sent to their email address. This secure logon method ensures that only authorized individuals can gain access to the sensorProbe+ units’ user interface.
Setting up Two-Factor Authentication on your AKCP sensorProbe+ is a simple process. Users can select their account settings, password preferences, SMTP mail server settings, and specify the email address to receive the OTP. Additionally, users can choose the OTP’s time frame for expiration. For those using sensorProbe+ base units with built-in 4G cellular data modems, the OTP can be sent via SMS for added convenience and security.
