    🧠 Understanding the 2FA

    The Internet dictionary gives this definition of the Double Factors Authentication or 2FA πŸ“–

    Double authentication or two-factor authentication (2FA) is a method of strong authentication whereby a user can access a computer resource (a computer, a smartphone, or a website) after presenting two separate proofs of identity to an authentication mechanism.

    The implementation of 2FA on Welcome to the Jungle products provides your organization with better security in the management of your data, and that of your candidates.

    It is now possible to disconnect unused sessions that you would have left connected from your account. This article tells you how to do it!


    πŸš™ Set up your 2FA

    To set up double authentication,

    1. Go to your admin center
    2. Go to your personal settings:



    1. Click on Security
    2. Activate the 2-Step verification



    Once activated, you will have to set one of the two options:



    Mail authentication

    This classic authentication usage will send you an email each time you connect, so that you can confirm that you are the one who made the connection.

    As soon as you click on the "Turn On" button, you will receive an email with the subject line "2 steps authentication activation", containing the 6-digit code that will confirm the activation of the 2FA.

    To deactivate it, it is very simple: you will just have to click on "Turn off".
