Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is an authentication method that requires a user to provide two verification factors to gain access to your BrightMove Account. BrightMove has added a One-Time Password option verified through an app on your smartphone. The one-time password in this case is a 6 digit security code.
Why Enable Two-Factor Authentication?
Adding additional verification factors decreases the likelihood of a successful cyber attack. Usernames and passwords are vulnerable to brute force attacks and can be stolen by third parties, especially if a username and password combination is reused on multiple different sites.
Enabling Two-Factor authentication

This brings up a QR code. Go to your authenticator of choice (full list below) and select to add a new account via QR code. Follow any setup instructions in your app. If you cannot use the QR code, click Show Secret Key to manually set up the account. Once the app is set up, you should see a 6 digit code on the app.
