How to enable Two-Factor Authentication

Step 2 – After you logged to your Customer Portal, click on Account information.
Step 3 – Then, you must click on Security & Privacy button.
Step 4 – On the next page, you will see the following. You must click on “Activate 2FA“.
Step 5 – Now it’s time to scan the QR code with your phone. You will need to use Google Authenticator to do so. Once scanned, you will need to enter a six-digit verification code and then click on “Confirm 2FA code“.
Step 5.1 – Upon activating your 2FA please make sure to keep the recovery key in a safe place. If you fail to do so and lose your phone or can’t open it anymore you won’t be able to regenerate your 2FA keys. Your access will therefore be lost and a manual reset of the 2FA on your account will have to be performed.
Step 6 – Upon completion you will be redirected back to a previous page and will see a notification informing you that 2FA has been enabled along with the timestamp of the activation.
By following all theses steps, you have successfully configured two-factor authentication for your Globo.Tech Customer Portal access. Your access to the Customer Portal is now much more secure, and you can rest assured that only you will be able to access it.
