'Trust This Device for 30 Days' for Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

  • Updated

Welcome to our guide on utilizing the Trust This Device for 30 Days feature in Re-Leased. This feature is designed to streamline your login process by reducing the frequency of Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) prompts, while still preserving the security standards you trust. Let's explore what this option is, why you might want to use it, and how you can activate it for a smoother login experience.

Understanding the 'Trust This Device for 30 Days' Option

The Trust This Device for 30 Days option is an addition to the Re-Leased platform that allows your browser to remember your verified identity via your 2FA method. If you enable this feature, your device or browser will not require 2FA authentication as frequently, meaning if you're using a trusted work computer, you won't be prompted for 2FA every time you log in within the 30-day period. Please note, this function is specific to the device or browser where it's activated; other devices will still require 2FA verification.

Advantages of Trusting Your Device

Here's why trusting your device can make a difference:

  • Time-saving: Bypass the 2FA process on trusted devices for 30 days.
  • Convenience: Less interruption and smoother access to Re-Leased, especially during busy work hours.

How to Activate the 'Trust This Device for 30 Days'

Activating this option is a breeze. Here’s how:

  1. Enter your Re-Leased login credentials as usual.
  2. Once you reach the 2-factor authentication token page, look for the option that says Trust This Device for 30 Days.
  3. Tick the checkbox to activate this feature.
  4. Continue your login with your 2FA token as normal.
  5. Your device is now trusted! You won't need to use 2FA on this device/browser for the next 30 days.

After the 30-day trust period expires, you will be prompted to authenticate with 2FA again. At that point, you can choose to trust your device for another 30 days.

Security Considerations

It’s important to only trust devices that you are confident are secure and used solely by you. Be cautious with public or shared devices, as enabling this feature on such devices may pose a security risk.
