Turning on Google two-factor authentication will dramatically increase security on this Artlogic Database account. Follow the instructions below to turn on or off your Google two-factor authentication for your Artlogic login.
Info: Please note you will need to be an administrator to perform this action. If you do not have this level of access on your database we recommend reaching out to someone at your organisation who does.
Two-factor authentication, or '2FA', is a way of logging into websites or online systems that require more than just a password. Using a password to log into a website is susceptible to security threats, because it represents a single piece of information a malicious person needs to acquire. Two-factor authentication provides additional security by requiring additional information to sign in.
Steps and requirements
To use two-factor authentication you will need a smartphone or tablet (e.g. an iPhone or iPad) and the Google Authenticator app available from the AppStore or Google Play.
Once installed an Artlogic database Admin user will need to pair the app with your Artlogic database user/s account by turning on two-factor authentication in the edit screen of each user record and scanning the QR Code with the Google Authenticator app.
To do this, the Admin user must log in to your database and go to Other > Admin > Users > choose the account you want to edit by clicking the 'pencil edit' icon > then click the 'enable/disable Two-factor authentication' button and follow the pairing instructions.
Using the Authenticator app to login
Once the above steps have been completed, every time the user attempts to log in to the Artlogic database, they will need to open the Authenticator app, select 'Artlogic Online', and then the app will produce a six-digit code. The will need to be entered into the Artlogic database login screen upon signing in.
This will ensure that only the person using the paired smartphone or tablet may log in to this user account.
