verification is a feature that adds an extra layer of security to your My
F-Secure account. This additional layer makes sure that no one can log in as
you, even if that person has discovered your password.
When you or anyone else tries
to log in to your account, two-step verification asks you for the two things
that only you know and have: your password and a unique security code. The
security code you need is generated using authentication software, such as
Google Authenticator or Duo Mobile, which you can install on your mobile
When two-step verification is
enabled, a security code is needed every time you log in. The mobile app
provides this security code. In the two-step verification feature in your My
F-Secure account, there is also a set of recovery codes that you can save
separately. These codes ensure that you can access your account without the
authentication app; for example, in the unfortunate event you lose the mobile
device that generates the security code.
Note: Remember to keep these
codes safe and make sure that only
you can access them. You
can only use each code once and in the order that they are listed.
