Enable two-factor authentication with HootSuite using AuthAnvil Authenticator Two-step verification
You can setup two-factor authentication for your DreamHost Account by using AuthAnvil Authtenticator two-step verification. Download the AuthAnvil Authenticator mobile app, install it and grant the application access to the camera so it can scan barcodes / QRCodes to add new applications such as HootSuite, to the application.
Upon first activation of the AuthAnvil Authenticator, it will ask for authorization to access the camera. This is so it can use the camera to scan barcodes and QR codes from other applications that you wish to pair it with.
The steps for pairing AuthAnvil Authenticator with HootSuite are shown below:
- Login to your HootSuite account, Select Settings, then Account from the launch menu, and in the popup window, select Security.
- Select the Get Started button and open your AuthAnvil Authenticator app, scan the QR Code that is on screen.
- Once the site has been paired, generate a one-time passcode and enter that into the space provided to complete the registration.
- Choose how you want the two-step verification to function, all the time, or just when logging in from a new location.
- Setup complete.
