Two-Factor Authentication with iPhone

Overview

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.
