Add security to your account. You can use a 2-step authentication when logging into your account preventing unauthorized access. Upon entering password, you'll be asked to insert 6-digit login code from your Google authenticator or a 3rd party app.

You can use this custom feature with or without HIPAA feature depending on your needs and business requirements.

Please note! In case you have this feature enabled our support agents will not be able to access your account settings.
As well it will not be possible to connect the account to Zapier.
