Release Details

2-Factor Authentication (Android & iOS)

2-factor authentication is now available on mobile applications, and it will ask for the verification code which will be sent to the user's email.

  • The verification code sent to the user's email is valid for 5 minutes.
  • 60 seconds after the first code is sent, the user is able to click Resend Code to receive another verification code.
  • The Resend Code option will be disabled for 15 minutes after the user clicks Resend Code 3 times.
  • The Verify button will be disabled for 15 minutes if the user enters an invalid code 5 times.
  • Once clicking on the Verify button with a valid code, then a popup shown below will appear.

2-Factor Authentication 1

A new biometric authentication feature has been added to the mobile application which will provide an extra layer of security for mobile app users.
To activate this feature, users will be prompted to confirm their preference during the initial setup or can enable it later through the app's settings.
