What is 2-factor Authentication? Why do I need it?
Two-factor authentication dramatically improves the security of your Points account and all the personal information you store with Points.
With Two-factor authentication, when you want to sign in to your Points account, you will initially need to provide two pieces of information—your password and a six-digit verification code that's automatically delivered to your email or sent to your phone number. By entering the code, you're verifying that not only do you have the correct password for the account but also that email or phone number in your profile is valid and accessible to you.
Once signed in, you won’t be asked for a verification code again unless you sign out completely, change your password, change locations, or if a significant time has passed since you last accessed your account.
Keeping Points Loyalty Wallet safe and secure is at the core of what we do. Implementing Two Factor Authentication Login feature, in addition to strong passwords, will help protect our Users account information.
