Two-Factor Authentication

To help protect your Localize account, we highly recommend enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) for your user account. Even if your organization decides not to enforce it organization-wide, you still have the option to enable it for yourself.

Enable Two-Factor Authentication

When setting up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for your account you'll need to use an authentication app (i.e. Google Authenticator). After setting up your authentication app be sure to save the recovery keys if you have that option.
