How to Enable Two-Factor Authentication(2FA)

Two-Factor Authentication, or 2FA, is an extra layer of security for your account that goes beyond an email and password login. This allows you to further protect your account from a compromise.

To enable 2-Factor Authentication, follow these steps:

  1. Login to your MCProHosting client area.

  2. At the top-right of your client area, click your username.

  1. Select the “Edit Account Details” option.

  2. To the right, click “Security Settings”.

  3. Under “Two-Factor Authentication” click the button “CLICK HERE TO ENABLE”.

  4. Upon clicking that button, a “Two-Factor Authentication Setup Process” window will appear.

  5. Click “GET STARTED” to begin the Two-Factor Authentication setup.

  6. A QR Code/Secret Key will appear. Scan the QR Code or manually input the secret key within an authenticator addon/app.

  7. You will now be asked to verify the setup. Grab the security code generated by your authenticator addon/app and enter that code.

  8. Click “Confirm” to confirm that code.


You have now successfully enabled two-factor authentication on your client area account!
