TIME REQUIRED: 10 MINUTES

YOU WILL NEED:  

  • Access to your eBoss Profile page 
  • A smartphone 
  • The Authy App

STEP 1: DOWNLOAD THE AUTHY APP

1.1) First, download the Authy app. You can get it Here. 

STEP 2: ACTIVATE MULTIFACTOR AUTHENTICATION

2.1)
Log in to your eBoss database, and navigate to your profile page (/myoffice/profile/).
2.2)
Scroll down, and click the button marked "Activate MFA" (1)

2.3) Next, open the Authy app in your smartphone.
2.4) Use the app to scan the QR code on your profile page (2).
2.5) The app will now display a six digit numerical code. You have successfully set up 2 Factor Authentication on your eBoss account!

 
STEP 3: LOGGING IN WITH 2FA ENABLED

3.1)
With 2FA enabled, your login page should now look like this:

3.2) First, enter your username (1) and Password (2) as normal.  
3.3) Make sure that the checkbox labelled "I Have an MFA Token" is ticked (3).
3.4) Open the Authy app on your phone, and enter the six digit code for your eBoss account (4).

From now on, only you will be able to log in to your eBoss account, because only you have access to the smartphone handset which has been linked to the account. A fresh code is generated each time you want to log in, so make sure you always have your phone nearby when attempting to access your eBoss database. If your six digit code is not accepted, try  refreshing the app to generate a new code, and try again.
