How to 2FA - cPanel Print

  • 2

cPanel enables you to configure two-factor authentication (2FA), an improved security measure for the login interface. Two-factor authentication requires two forms of identification:

To enable 2FA, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
    If you do not know how to log in to your cPanel account, please see this article.

In the SECURITY section of the cPanel home screen, click Two-Factor Authentication


Click Set Up Two-Factor Authentication:


 

Under Step 1 below, use your preferred two-factor authentication application (for example, DuoMobile) to scan the QR code. If you do not have a QR code reader, you can manually configure two-factor authentication within your app by entering the information provided under Don’t have a QR code reader?.


 

Under Step 2, in the Security Code text box, type the security code you see in the 2FA app.

You must type the security code within 30 seconds. After time expires, the app generates a new six-digit code.
 
 
Click Configure Two-Factor Authentication. cPanel enables 2FA for your account.
 

 


 

Reconfiguring 2FA

To reconfigure 2FA, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel

In the SECURITY section of the cPanel home screen, click Two-Factor Authentication

 

Click Reconfigure Two-Factor Authentication, and then follow the steps in the previous procedure for enabling two-factor authentication.

When you reconfigure 2FA for your account, any existing configurations no longer generate valid security codes. You must update every app with the new QR code.
