How-To Enable & Configure Two-Step Verification for Users

Authors list

Two-step verification (also known as Two-Factor Authentication) helps protect you and your data by making it more difficult for someone else to log in to your Kahootz account. 

It uses two different forms of identity: your password (something you know), and a security code from your phone (something you have). This helps keep your account secure because even if someone else finds your password, they'll be stopped if they don't have access to your phone.

Enabling Two-Step Verification on your Kahootz site

Note: You must be a Site Owner in order to enable two-step verification on your Kahootz site.

  3. Select "Settings" from the available options.

  4. Tick the “Enable two-step verification" checkbox under the "Security Settings" section.

  5. You can also tick the “Trusted Devices” checkbox to allow users to skip the verification process when using regular devices.

  6. Click "Save." 

Your Kahootz site will now have additional two-step security added.
