Why do I receive a 2FA email verification code after login?
What is 2FA verification?
A 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication) verification email is a security measure that requires users to provide two methods of identification before accessing their accounts. After entering their username and password, the user will receive a code via email, which they must enter or click to confirm their identity and complete the login process. This helps ensure that only the rightful owner of the account can access it, even if their password has been compromised.
Do I have to enter this code every time?
If you access from the same location/IP address the platform will not ask for a new verification.
