Sign-in to the Talk2M Cloud, using the eCatcher software implements both in-built password enforcement, plus two-factor authentication policy. At sign-in, a password is required and a confirmation code sent to your mobile phone, to provide enhanced device access security.
The two factor authentication is a secure identification mechanism combining two different components for unambiguous authentication. In other words: it adds an extra step to the login procedure. It is based on the principle that an unauthorized actor is unlikely to be able to supply both factors required for access. It requires both "something you know" and "something you have": the combination of your credential and a security code texted on your phone.
