Two-Factor Authentication Screen

Two-factor authentication is time-based and requires a correct system time setting.

The Two-Factor Authentication screen has buttons to manage two-factor authentication (2FA) credentials, and it displays a different message depending on if you have 2FA enabled or disabled.

To configure 2FA settings go to the Advanced settings screen. For more information, see the Managing Global 2FA tutorial.
