Setting Up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) with a Security Key

  • Updated

Welcome to our guide on setting up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for your Re-Leased account. In today's digital world, utilizing 2FA is essential for enhancing the security of your property management software. This extra layer of protection helps guard against unauthorized access and secures your data from potential cyber threats. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to set up 2FA using a security key or biometric device, adding that extra shield to your property management software.

Prerequisites for 2FA Setup

Before you start, ensure that you have a compatible security key or biometric device on hand. Re-Leased supports any device that adheres to the WebAuthn standard, including but not limited to:

  • YubiKeys
  • Fingerprint Readers
  • Windows Hello
  • Touch ID
  • Face ID

Note: Internet Explorer does not support the WebAuthn standard. It's recommended to switch to a modern browser such as Chrome or Edge for a better and more secure experience.

Accessing Your Account Settings

  1. Click on your profile picture in the top-right corner of the Re-Leased platform.
  2. Choose My Account from the dropdown menu.

Please note: Upon logging into Re-Leased, if the 2FA is yet to be enabled, you will be prompted to set this up before gaining access to Re-Leased. 

Setting Up Your Security Key

  1. In the My Account area, locate and click on the Security tab.
  2. Click on Set up now under the Security Key section.

Follow the on-screen prompts to insert or activate your security key or biometric device. When prompted, give your device a descriptive name for easier identification, especially if you plan to enrol multiple devices. The system will enrol the device, and then prompt you to give it a friendly title. This is optional but can be helpful if you have more than one device you would like to enrol.

Congratulations, you just levelled up your security! The next time you attempt to sign in to Re-Leased, you will be asked to activate your security key as an additional piece of information.
