Netsparker Cloud users can enable two-factor authentication, or as also known two-step verification to add an extra layer of security to their Netsparker Cloud account. When you enable two-factor authentication, when logging in to Netsparker Cloud you will be asked for your password and a one-time code. Configuring it is very easy, as I will explain in this article.
The next time you login to Netsparker Cloud you will be asked for your email and password as per usual, and then you will be asked for the one time code from your mobile app. Should you not be able to access the mobile app during login use one of the recovery codes as explained in the following section.
Once you setup two-factor authentication in Netsparker Cloud, the service will generate ten recovery codes as highlighted in the below screenshot.
Copy the recovery codes and keep them in a secure place where only you and other trusted users can access. Recovery codes are only needed when you need to login and do not have access to the two-factor authentication mobile app to generate a one time code.
If you need to login to Netsparker Cloud and you do not have access to the mobile app to generate a one time code, enter your email and password and when asked for the one time code specify one of the recovery codes.
A recovery code can only be used once and should you use all recovery codes disable and enable two-factor authentication again to regenerate new recovery codes.
