How to setup a Security key for secure login.
Hardware authentication is the strongest multi factor authentication (MFA) option available. A physical security key is required when you login to your account. Next to the security key, it will ask you to confirm that you are a real person via a PIN.
How the security key works
- You’ll need the security key when you sign in to Virtual Vaults.
- Each time you log in, you'll need to insert the security key in your computer and input a PIN.
Set up your security key
|1. Go to your User details and click Update settings at Security keys.
|2. Click Add security key
|3. Enter your password and click Next.
|4. Insert your security key into your computer and click Start.
|5. Confirm if the setup is for the correct email and click Ok.

Security key Tip: We strongly recommend, after registering your security key, that you setup an authentication app and/or register a backup security key. In case you lose your security key, you will always have additional ways to authenticate yourself.
