What is two-factor authentication (2FA)?

2FA allows you to optionally secure your HOQU account. With the standard HOQU login and password enabled, you are prompted to enter a special 6-code from authentication applications (Google Authenticator, Duo Mobile, Microsoft Authenticator). 2FA is available to all HOQU users.

How to enable / disable 2FA?

To do this, in the personal account HOQU fits in the user's personal account. To do this, click on the avatar of your user with access rights.

A drop-down window will appear in which select Profile.

Next, go to the Settings tab.

In the Password and Security section, click the Activate button

A modal window will open to activate 2FA

If you don't have the 2FA app installed, download it from the link below:

Next, in the 2FA app, scan the QR that appears in the modal window in HOQU.

After the QR code is scanned, a 6-digit numeric code will appear in the application, which must be entered into the form in the modal window.

Then click the Continue button.

If the code is entered correctly, 2FA will be enabled for your account. This will be evidenced by the corresponding plate next to the shutdown button.

To turn off 2FA, click the Disable button.

A modal window for entering a password will appear. To disable 2FA, enter your account password. If the password is entered correctly, 2FA will be disabled.

If the data is entered correctly, a page for entering a 6-digit password from the 2FA application will open.

Enter the 6-digit code for your account from the 2FA app. If the code is entered correctly, you will be authorized to HOQU, your personal account will open.
