To do this, you only need to:

1. Access your Account Settings.
2. Then, General.
3. Then, check the Enable two-factor authentication box.

When you log in to your Beenote account (email, Microsoft, or Google), a validation code will be sent to you by email. Simply enter this code in the appropriate space to unlock access.

Organization-wide two-factor authentication is a feature of Beeboard accounts.

To do this, you must:

2. Then, to the Organization.
3. Next, you must check the Enable two-factor authentication for the entire organization box.
