Two factor authentication adds an additional layer of security to your Matters.Cloud account and Client data. When you enable two-factor authentication in Matters.Cloud, users will be required to log in with their email address, password and a random numeric code generated natively by the iPhone.
This will be stored in your iCloud Keychain and as it's linked to your iCloud account it will work seamlessly across your iPhone, iPad or Mac. It will also transfer automatically when moving to a new Apple device.
To get started all you need to do is log in to your account, click to edit your user profile and enable Two factor via the Security tab.
You will then be provided with simple instructions including a barcode to scan:
Setup Instructions - iPhone

3. Once you have been provided with the verification code shown above, enter this into the Code field within Matters.Cloud and click the Submit button.
Secure Login Using Two Factor
Once you have enabled two-factor authentication, you will be required to enter the verification code by looking up the record from your Settings > Passwords on your device each time you login to Matters.Cloud from a new location.
