Two-Factor Authentication

To complete logging on to Web Survey Creator with Two-Factor Authentication you will need to use either the authenticator app or email to access a 6-digit authentication code.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Two-Factor Authentication is an extra layer of security for your Web Survey Creator account, designed to ensure that you're the only person who can access your account, even if someone discovers your password.

From 30 June 2024 Two-Factor Authentication will be a mandatory feature.
To enable Two-Factor Authentication go to My Account and look for the section on Two-Factor Authentication. You can choose between 2 methods of Two-Factor Authentication. The first is the Google Authenticator App. This uses an application you can install on a smart device and provides and ever-changing, time-limited code for access. The second is Email. This will provide a code that is sent to your email account when you attempt to login. The code is an ever-changing, time-limited code for access.

You can only employ one method at a time. If you wish to change methods you must disconnect Two-Factor Authentication and re-enable it.

When you choose a method you will be asked to enter in your login password to verify this process.
