Two-Factor Authentication: Keep Your Account Data Safe and Secure (Legacy)
This help article contains instructions for the Legacy Version of Rentec Direct. More information about the latest version of Rentec Direct can be found here: The Remodel | Rentec Direct’s Newest Software Update
Two-factor authentication gives you and your account data an additional layer of protection by texting you a unique code to input when you log into your account from a new or unknown device.
If the system does not recognize your computer it will send a text message with a secret code to your mobile number. Before you can complete your login, the system will ask you for this code. This way, even if somebody obtained or guessed your password, they would also need to have possession of your mobile phone to log in and access your data.
Set Up Two-Factor Authentication
In your Rentec Direct account:
- Click on Settings.
- Click on Login & Password.
- Check the box next to Enable 2-Factor Authentication.
- Input your mobile phone number (including area code).
- Click Submit.
- Enter the code that was sent to your mobile phone in the Confirmation Code area.
Next time you log in to your Rentec Direct account, you will be prompted to enter the code sent to your mobile phone.
Important Note: If you are using a secure computer, like your personal device or computer, you have the option to select “Don't ask for codes again on this computer”. It is not recommended that you select this option for shared computers or public computers.
System Note: Because two-factor authentication is user login specific, each subuser will need to use the above instructions to enable two-factor authentication on their own account.
