Two-factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security and helps to ensure only an authorized user has access to your account, even if the password becomes known to others.

Using a 3rd party authenticator application (IOS, Android) which generates a single-use verification code, the two-factor authentication user will need to provide this code in order to log into the Dolby.io dashboard.

608608

To enable this feature, navigate to the Logging in page the Dolby.io dashboard, and click Set Up to activate the two-factor authentication service. This button will take you through the setup process needed to register your authenticator application.

18091809

When you have started this process, it is advised to complete the setup entirely to avoid any issues or missed information. Please have your authenticator application ready before starting the process.

Read the QR code on the screen with your authenticator application. Once the QR code is read, it will then generate a code on your device that will be required on the next window. Make sure you see the code on your device and click the Next button.

576576

Now that the two-factor authentication system has synced and verified your application, anyone accessing your account will be required to enter a dynamically generated code from the synced authentication application. The generated login codes are valid for only a few seconds from your authentication application.

You can sync other devices with an Authentication application if needed to share access, or just to have more than 1 device to access with. To do this simply go back to the account page and click the two-factor authentication button to open the two-factor authentication management screen.

At the bottom of the two-factor authentication management window you will see the same QR code you used to initially sync the last device, use the QR to sync another device.

The two-factor authentication management window also lets you reset your QR code, which invalidates the last one, as well as other features like generating new emergency codes, or turning off two-factor authentication altogether.

❗️

You must resync any other devices if you had multiple synced with the last QR code.
