How to Activate?

Activating Incapsula’s two factor authentication is a 5-minute process. Once you activate Incapsula on your website, login to the Incapsula management console and go to the Login Protect settings screen:

  • 1. Enter the URL you want to protect.
  • 2. Choose your preferred methods of authentication: E-mail, SMS or Google Authenticator.
  • 3. Add the users that will be able to access this URL (Name and Email).
  • 4. These users will receive an email with a verification link. Through this link, the user will be taken to a page and asked to provide an email address and phone number for authentication (via SMS or email) and with a QR code for Google Authenticator.
  • That’s it! Now, anyone trying to access the protected page, will first receive an Incapsula Two Factor Authentication page where they’ll be asked to provide their one-time token.
