We're introducing Two-Step Verification (2SV) to our platform to help users keep their Awin account secure.
Starting November 7, when logging into your Awin account you will notice a small change. Awin has introduced 2SV to all users with a series of prompts guiding you through the quick and simple process of adding a further layer of security to your Awin account. Although the addition of 2SV to your account is optional, it is strongly recommended and only takes a few minutes to setup to further secure your account.
To protect your account 2SV, you will only need these three items:
- A mobile phone
- A QR code reader like Authy or Google Authenticator (available via Apple's App Store and Google Play)
- A few minutes of your time
Once complete, you can rest assured your data is as secure and protected as it can be. 2SV will be available at login and through the settings in your Awin account starting November 7.
Currently, Awin staff use 2SV to access their Awin accounts when outside of the Awin network; however, this security enhancement will see Awin staff using 2SV at all times.
With data breaches becoming increasingly common, as a network we are taking proactive measures to ensure that your and your customers' data is secure. The introduction of 2SV follows efforts already carried out to strengthen password settings and improve the CAPTCHA. Additional layers of security with respect to our Awin Mastertags are coming next – please keep on the lookout to this announcement.
Should you have any additional questions on how to implement 2SV on your Awin account, please contact your account manager.
