At LetsHost, we take the security and protection of our customer’s data extremely seriously.  We are constantly reviewing our systems to ensure optimal security for all clients’ information stored on our servers. Passwords are becoming increasingly easy to compromise – users sometimes have the same password for everything they do online, or use a simple, easy to guess password. Some users have used the same password for a long time which has unknowingly been leaked. This is where 2 Factor Authentication can help.

We issue “time based one-time passwords” – these are issued using an app installed on your Android or iPhone.  When you log in to the LetsHost client area, you will enter your email address and password as usual.  A second login prompt is then presented where you key in the 6 digit code from your smart phone.  Once verified you can then log in to your account.

We recommend the Google Authenticator for Android, or Apple’s OATH Token App for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

To set up 2 Factor Authentication on your LetsHost account, you will first need to login to your client area
Once logged in, in the top right (just under My Account) click, “Hello, YourName!”
– Click Security Settings.
– Click the blue “click here to enable” button
– Click Get Started
Login to your preferred authenticator app and scan the QR code shown. The next time you login to your account you will be prompted to also enter a code from your authenticator.

If you require further information to the above, please submit a ticket via your client area and a member of the team will be happy to advise.
