Set up 2-factor authentication

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) makes it extremely hard for hackers to break into your online accounts. In addition to your user name and password, websites and cloud apps will ask for an additional authentication token. Most often you will have to use a one-time password sent to you via SMS or obtained through a one-time password (OTP) service like Google Authenticator running on your cell phone.

How it works


Portadi offers two-factor authentication (2-FA, 2FA) with Google Authenticator. When you login to Portadi, you will be asked for your:
  • Username
  • Password
  • One-time password from Google Authenticator  

Initial setup

  4. Input the 6-digit code from Google Authenticator into Portadi to activate 2FA.
