2-Factor Authentication and your Mediavine Dashboard
To help increase the security of your dashboard, we’ve now added two-factor authentication for our publishers!
In just a few easy steps, you can get two-factor authentication set up for your MV Dashboard. Once it’s set up, you’ll just need to enter your security token as a second step when you log in.
How to Enable Two-Factor Authentication
Head to the login page for your dashboard. Once you’re logged in, click on your name in the lower left corner:
And then click Account:
Scroll down to the section labeled Two-Factor Authentication, and click "Enable 2FA"
Next, you’ll enter your country code (if applicable) and cell phone number, then hit Enable:
5. You will immediately be prompted to enter in the code that was just sent to your device at the number provided:
Included with the text message is a link to install the Authy app, which we highly recommend, as it is more secure, and is FREE to download from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
6. Once the app is downloaded, open it and follow the prompts to complete a one-time set up. You’ll need to enter your phone number and country code as indicated in the app:
You’ll then receive a text message with a registration code.
Enter the registration code into the Authy app.
Congrats! Your app is now set up! Once you have that initial set up complete, you’ll get a push notification whenever you attempt to log in to your dashboard. Tap that notification to be taken directly to your security token.
