After successful entries the reseller is registered and will be logged in automatically.

Setting up two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication provides an additional layer of security for the HOOC Solution. It ensures that only you can access your account, even if someone else knows your password.

In order to use two-factor authentication, an application is required that implements the HOOC provided TOTP key. Below is a possible selection:

OS TOTP Apps
iOS OTP Auth, Google Authenticator
Android FreeOTP Authenticator, Google Authenticator

To set up your two-factor authentication, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigation to personal account
  2. Navigation to the security settings
  3. Enable two-factor authentication
  4. Scanning in generated QR code with the two-factor authentication app
  5. Enter the code from the two-factor authentication app and confirm by clicking on Verify code.

Two-factor authentication is then activated for future logins.

It is recommended to generate backup codes and keep them in a safe place in case your device gets lost with the configure TOTP app.
