Two Factor Authentication - CanadianWiki

  • CanadianWiki has enabled the ability to use Two factor Authentication which, allows a registered user to input a code using a mobile phone while trying to login on a device that is not known and/or, a browser where you did not save your login credentials. You are capable of using popular Authenticators like Google Authenticator and Microsoft Authenticator. How does it work? You will attempt to input your user name and password. Once authenticated with CanadianWiki, you'll be prompted to enter a code. You will open your authenticator and input the CanadianWiki code which refreshes every several seconds. Do you need internet access for that? No however, you will need to allow your authenticator to download new codes to your phone every so often. Yes, it may sound complicated but, the authenticator will ask you to point your camera to the code box provided by CanadianWiki, and you will be ready to go. Two Factor Authentication can be used on a lot of platforms like Google including YouTube, Facebook, Microsoft Account and more.

    Two Factor Authentication is a great way to secure your account should someone guess your login information or, have your credentials stolen by a computer virus. CanadianWiki is now able to remove your authenticator from your account, if you reset your phone, or lose your phone. The only persons able to do this are those with shell access to the CanadianWiki database. CanadianWiki will be looking at options to authenticate the user to the account in question, as a general policy to prevent unauthorized requests. Once a policy is in effect, it will be added here. Until such policy is in effect, you are strongly encouraged to not reset your phone without removing the authenticator requirement from your account first.

    IMPORTANT: When signing up for Two Factor Authentication, you should keep in mind that you are given a list of codes you must keep in a safe place. These codes will allow you access to your CanadianWiki account should you lose access to your authenticator. To enable Two Factor Authentication or to remove the authenticator from your account, please visit Special:Two-factor_authentication For additional information Visit MediaWiki.
