Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Paperless Parts allows you to secure your login using Two-Factor Authentication or 2FA.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) significantly improves security by additionally requiring a unique code generated by your mobile device to sign in. Paperless Parts 2FA works with a number of TOTP-based apps like Google Authenticator, FreeOTP, and Authy.
Enabling Two-Factor Authentication
1. Before enabling 2FA, download one of the TOTP-based apps listed above.
2. Go to Settings > Two-Factor Authentication.
2. Click on the toggle to enable 2FA. Using your chosen TOTP app like Google Authenticator, scan the QR code or manually enter the characters below the code in step 1. This will add the entry into your app and generate a code.
3. Now that you have Paperless Parts added to the app, enter the generated code into Step 2. This will enable 2FA for your account. Next time you log in, you will be required to enter the 2FA code generated by the app.
