2FA is a reliable method of increasing the security of your account by enforcing two methods of authentication when you log in. For the most part, this second method is your phone.


Enabling 2FA on your SSD Nodes account


First, log into the client area. Hopefully, this interface is familiar to you—it’s where you can administer your VPS, order a new server, and more.


Click on the dropdown menu that says "Hello, YOUR-NAME!" and then click on Security Settings.


The 2FA settings page will open immediately. To start the activation process, click on the Click here to Enable button.


You’ll see a short description of what 2FA does and how you will use it. Click the Get Started button to continue.


With SSD Nodes, you’ll use an application on your smartphone to generate a security code. You’ll use this code to authenticate yourself when you log in.


A number of 2FA applications exist across mobile platforms, such as Google Authenticator, Authenticator Plus, Authy, and more.


To enable the SSD Nodes 2FA process on your smartphone, each of these applications allows you to take a picture of the QR code that appears on your screen. Or, you can copy the secret key that appears above the QR code.

Secret key and QR code redacted for security!


Click the Confirm button to move forward.


You’ll be asked to verify that you’ve configured your 2FA app correctly by entering a code now. We’ll only activate 2FA once we know that your application works. Once you enter a verified code your account will be secured with 2FA!


In the case of lost or stolen phones

Between accidents, thefts, and unexpected factory resets, we understand that there are times where 2FA isn’t available to you. This is why we provide a one-time use backup code to help you access your account if you can no longer use the 2FA app. Write this code down on paper and keep it somewhere safe.
