Two factor authentication
Two-step verification lets you protect your account in a strong way.
With 2-step verification enabled, logging in to your account works a bit differently: you enter your password and a secure code generated by your mobile device. Stealing your password isn’t enough for an attacker to get access to your Exoscale account.
This method combines the security of something you know (your password) and something you have (your mobile device that generates secure codes).
