When it comes to keeping your account secure with 2FA (2 factor authentication, also known as Multi-Factor Authentication), we rely on Google Authenticator. Hosted.com uses authentication to protect your accounts from being accessed by any unauthorized person.

To get started with Google Authenticator, the process will vary depending on your device. If you are using an Android or Windows Mobile device, head over to the Google Play Store. If you are an Apple user, you will want to visit the Apple App Store.

2FA is now activated for your account, from now on, whenever you want to log in to your account, you’ll need to enter your username, password, and the 2 Factor Authentication code displayed in the Google Authenticator app.

By adding this extra layer of security with Google Authenticator’s TwoFactor Authentication to protect your account, you can rest assured that no-one can have access to your account that you have not personally authorized to do so..
