Two-factor authentication (2FA) in Happy HR
What is Two-Factor Authentication?Put simply, Two-Factor Authentication is an extra layer of security that is known as “multi factor authentication”. It requires not only a username and password but also something that only that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand – such as a mobile device and in the case of Happy HR a 2FA code is sent to a user’s primary email, alternative email, primary phone or alternative phone (whatever is selected by you when logging in).
