InvoiceOcean gives Users the possibility to activate two-factor authentication (two-step verification) via Google Authenticator app. This is definitely a safer way to log in - instead of only one step of authentication (such as entering a password), two steps are required - in this case, entering the verification code generated by Google Authenticator app when logging in to your account in InvoiceOcean.

More about two-step verification and its second type you can read in the post Security in InvoiceOcean with two types of two-step verification and choose the one that works best for you.

To use the second type of two-step login and connect your account with Google Authenticator:

  • install the Google Authenticator app on your mobile device
