Two-factor authentication adds another level of security to your Ubersmith account. It requires a second form of verification, in addition to a user name and password. Two-factor authentication is available for your users as well as your clients and contacts.

To use two-factor authentication to log in, you will need to first add the two-factor authentication module to Ubersmith and also install and configure an approved third-party, two-factor service on your mobile device. Ubersmith integrates with Authy and Duo (using Web SDK) for your approved Ubersmith users and any time-based, one-time password (TOTP) token-generator application for client and contact users, which they can enable in the Client Portal.
