How to set up two-factor authentication
What is two-factor authentication?
Two-factor authentication, or 2FA, is an extra layer of security you can apply to your MailerSend account to ensure that you’re the only person who can log in to your account, even if somebody else obtains your password.
With 2FA you will be required to enter a randomized 6-digit code every time you log in, preventing anyone else from accessing your account.
