Today we’re introducing two-factor authentication (2FA) for Redis Enterprise, aimed at strengthening overall security and preventing unauthorized access. This enhancement can help protect your Redis Labs account and eliminate unauthorized access. While this setting is optional, we strongly recommend implementing it.
Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to enable 2-factor authentication:
Setting up 2FA on your Redis Labs account
- Log into your account, click on the top right menu button and navigate to your user profile by clicking on your name at the bottom of the right navigation pane:
2) In your user profile, click on the ‘Multi Factor Authentication’ button.
3) Next, click ‘Activate Now.’
4) Start the process by entering your mobile phone number and click ‘Continue’:
Wait a few moments and check your phone. You should receive an SMS with your six-digit code for verification. Enter it and click ‘Verify.’
That’s it. You are all set and ready to go.
Simply scan the barcode into your authenticator app and provide your verification code.
