Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of security to your account by requiring more than just a password to log in. 

How to Enable Two-Factor Authentication

On your student dashboard, you will need to go to your profile details to set this up: My Account > Profile > Edit Profile > Password - click on Manage Two-Factor Authentication.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to set up the 2FA, you first need to have a 2FA app already installed on your phone - the setup will not be successful if you haven't installed the app beforehand. You may use one you have or download a new one. (Common 2FA apps are Google Authenticator, Lastpass, and Microsoft Authenticator)

Just scan the QR code with the 2FA app on your phone and it will generate a 6-digit code - please enter this on the Pin-Code section and Save.

You will be notified once you have successfully set this up, which you can likewise confirm on the Status details that shows Enabled

Each time you sign in to your student dashboard, make sure to keep your phone around!

*Usually, it's your email ID and password, unless you set up an express sign-in with your LinkedIn, Facebook, or Gmail account

Then input the 6-digit code shown on the 2FA app on your phone, click Verify code, then you're good to go!

Want to disable the two-level authentication? It's easy! Just go to your profile: My Account > Profile > Edit Profile > Password - click on Manage Two-Factor Authentication.

Just enter the 6-digit code on your 2FA app, Save Changes, and that's it!

The next time you sign in to your dashboard, you will only need to input your credentials (typically email ID and password), and you can proceed with your training.

Can I set up the 2-Factor Authentification while creating my CFI account?

Please note setting up 2-Factor Authentification is not an option while registering your account. You can set it up as soon as you can access your dashboard.

What if I lost the device my authenticator app was set up on?

If you are not able to access your authentification codes, you may reach out to [email protected] to temporarily disable your 2-FA. We will ask some security questions to protect your account.
