How to Enable the Two-Factor Authentication on Your cPanel Account?

Security is important for our data safety and we recommended you enable the Two-Factor Authentication(2FA) on your cPanel account so that hackers will be unable to access your cPanel account even if they have somehow obtained your account”s user and password details.

What are the Requirements?
You will need a smartphone with a supported time-based one-time password app. Mobile Phone OS like Android, Windows, iOS, and Blackberry has an app for 2FA.

How to Enable the Two-Factor Authentication on Your cPanel Account?
1. Log into your cPanel account.
2. In the “Security” section, click on the “Two-Factor Authentication” Icon.
