Two-Factor Login Authentication
Activation and Configuration of Two-Factor Authentication
For additional security precautions, ACS WebService offers the option for two-factor authentication logins.
This feature, which must be activated by Brivo Technical Support, affects all administrators within an account. Once activated, when an administrator logs into the system, he or she will receive an email with a login token which they must use to complete the login process. This token, which is only valid for a limited time, will be sent to the email address on file with that administrator’s profile.

After Brivo Technical Support has enabled Two-Factor Authentication, log in to your account.
