Two-factor authentication (also called two-step authentication or multi-factor authentication) is a procedure that offers a higher level of security.
When you log into your shop's control panel, you need to complete two distinct steps:
Enter your email and password to login
Enter the code generated by the mobile app or use one of the backup codes.
With two-factor authentication, your account is more secure, as even if someone finds out your password, they won't be able to log in without the second authentication step.
Two-factor authentication is available to all users who manage a store.
It is not possible for the store owner to set up two-factor authentication for his team members.
How to enable two-factor authentication
- Log into your shop control panel, then click on your name on the top bar
- Click on Manage Two-Factor Authentication
- On the screen, configure the access with the method: OTP application and follow the procedure that appears on the screen.

Note: Attention, the backup code can only be used once.
Once you have completed the above steps, you can click the Enable Two-Factor Authorization button. The system will then promptly ask you to enter an OTP code to confirm the account.
