How to Set Up Your Account for Two-Factor Authentication


You can use two-factor authentication with an Android or iPhone mobile application (such as Google Authenticator) to accessmg.n0c.com, thus increasing the security of your access.

The purpose of this article is to explain how to set up your account to use a two-factor authentication application to authenticate yourself when accessingmg.n0c.com, and how to avoid the risk of locking yourself out should you lose or break your mobile device.

To do so, you have to scan a QR code displayed in the MG panel and register it in the two-factor authentication application on your mobile device.

Note : The N0C glossary contains explanations on a wide range of subjects, and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.
