What is Two-factor-authentication?

 

Two-factor-authentication is an optional but highly recommended security feature, that adds an extra layer of protection to your Joker.com account.


Once enabled, you will need a six-digit security code in addition to your password, whenever you log in to Joker.com.
To generate these security codes, you will need a device for this. These two factors – the password, you know, and the smart phone, you have – add an additional layer of security against theft of credentials or dictionary attacks.

 

One of the most common and practical options for this purpose is using a mobile app for your smartphone. Those are usually free of charge, but any device or app which are capable of talking the TOTP protocol should work as well. Here is an incomplete list of some apps:


Google Authenticator (Android, iOS, Blackberry)
Amazon AWS Virtual MFA (Android)
Authenticator (Windows Phone)

Authentikator (Chrome Browser – do not use on same machine!)


During the short procedure to enable two-factor-authentication, you will receive a special 16-digit recovery code.
It is very important that you write this key down and store it somewhere safe.
If you ever lose your phone, or can't receive or generate a security code, you will need this recovery code for emergency access to Joker.com.

 

Please log into your Joker.com account and choose to activate or deactivate two-factor authentication in your Profile.
