Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a way of adding additional security on your account. 2FA requires you to enter an extra code when you log in or perform some account-sensitive action (e.g. changing your password). The code is generated from an application on your computer or mobile phone.
Go to the Account Settings page and click Enable.
The wizard will generate a QR code.

You need to scan this code with your 2FA application, then type the code your 2FA application shows. Once completed successfully, 2FA will be active on for your account.
When you have 2FA turned on for your account, Close.io will ask you for a 2FA code in the following cases:
- Logging in to Close.io (whether you use the web browser or the desktop app)
- Changing your password
- Changing your account email address
- Disabling 2FA on your account
In each of these cases, you'll be presented with the following screen prompting the 6-digit code from your app.

If you want to disable 2FA for your account, go to the Account Settings page again and click the Disable button. Close.io will ask you for both your password and the 2FA code.
If you lose access to your 2FA code generator, contact email@example.com.
You can also see which team members have enabled 2FA for their account by going to the Team & Plans page (under Settings).
