Your account security is a huge priority for us, so we implemented two-factor authentication (known as 2FA) to give your account an extra layer of protection in case your password is ever compromised.
If Stripchat notices a suspicious login attempt, it will automatically prompt for a 2FA code to ensure that it’s really you who is logging in. In order to do so, you need to download Google Authenticator app to your device, which will generate the codes required to verify your login. Please be aware that Google Authenticator does not work on multiple devices, it can only issue codes on a single mobile device.
To secure your account with 2FA, go to Settings and Privacy. There you will find the new Two-Factor Authentication panel where you can enable this feature. Follow all the instructions carefully to set it up and also the app, and you’ll never have to worry about your account safety again.
For a more detailed step by step setup guide for the 2FA, please visit our Support page here.
Now you can watch our Stripchat models and not worry about your login information! We’ve got your back!
Multi-factor authentication is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) to an authentication mechanism: knowledge (something the user and only the user knows), possession (something the user and only the user has), and inherence (something the user and only the user is).
Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type, or subset, of multi-factor authentication. It is a method of confirming users claimed identities by using a combination of two different factors:
– something they know,
– something they have,
– something they are.
Two-step verification or two-step authentication is a method of confirming a users claimed identity by utilizing something they know (password) and a second factor other than something they have or something they are. An example of a second step is the user repeating back something that was sent to them through an out-of-band mechanism, or a number generated by an app that is common to the user and the authentication system.
