With FastBound you have the ability to enable Two Factor Authentication. We recommend using Google Authenticator or 1Password.
What is Two Factor Authentication? Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two step verification or TFA (as an acronym), is an extra layer of security that is known as “multi factor authentication” that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand – such as a physical token.
Open FastBound and sign in
Click on the profile icon on the top right hand corner of the page
Select the Two Factor Authentication tab and then click the ‘Enable Two Factor Authentication’ button and you will see the QR code that you will need to scan
Open 1Password and sign in
In the Menu bar click File -> New Login
Enter a Name for the Login, your username, your password, and the FastBound login URL
Click the 3 little dots on the right hand side of the window, then click One-Time Password
Arrange your windows so you can see the QR code in FastBound and the QR code icon in 1Password. Then click the QR code icon and the QR code scanner window will open
Drag the QR code scanner over the QR code in the FastBound window from the step above
If you’re having trouble scanning the QR code you can click where it says “enter your secret key manually” in FastBound
Copy the secret code
Go back to 1Password and in the section with the dots paste the Secret Key Then click the Save button
The barcode scanner will turn green and save the info into 1Password
Click the Save button
1Password will generate a one time password code, you need to copy this or remember it.
Go back to FastBound and enter the code then click the Verify button
If it worked FastBound will give you a Recovery Code. You should save this Recovery Code in case you get locked out of your FastBound account. If your Recovery Code is lost it cannot be recovered.
You’re all done. To verify you can navigate back into the Two Factor Authentication setting in your profile and you’ll see a red button allowing you to Disable the Two Factor Authentication
The next time you login you’ll be asked for a Verification Code. Simply open up your Authenticator app to get it and type it in before you login to FastBound.
