# Two Factor Authentication (2FA)
Two-factor authentication helps to protect a users account by adding an additional layer of security. Once Two-factor Authentication is enabled, a password and time sensitive code is required in order to access an account.
Two-factor authentication is enabled on a per account basis.
To enable Two-factor Authentication:
- Click the avatar in the top right corner of the dashboard and select My account
- Scroll to Two-factor authentication and click Enable two-factor authentication
- Open your two-factor authentication app (Google Authenticator or similar) and select to add an account. Scan the QR code shown on the screen.
Enabling Two-factor authentication will automatically log you out of the Enhance panel and you will be required to login using your password and the time-sensitive code
