In addition to your email address and password as login details, you will be directed to add two-factor authentication to your account. This adds an extra layer of security, meaning there is less opportunity for unauthorised users to gain access to your profile. You can choose from the following two methods:
1. Via SMS codes
If you already confirmed your mobile number in the previous step and then select this option, you won't be asked to confirm it again using another code.
If you didn't confirm your mobile number in the previous step, you will be asked to provide your mobile number. A code will then be sent to your mobile phone device, which needs to be provided in registration.
Once confirmed, you will receive a new code to your mobile phone device each time you log in.
2. Authenticator app
If you do not have a suitable mobile number or maybe have poor mobile signal, you can choose to generate the codes using our Digidentity app. Once set up, it will not rely on a mobile network or internet connection to function. The app can be downloaded onto a smartphone or tablet using iOS, Android or Windows software.
Once downloaded, follow the instructions on screen to set this up. The app will continue to generate codes every 30 seconds which you can use to log into your account.
