To further strengthen account security at Scalable, we are making two-factor authentication (2FA) mandatory for logins starting in March 2024.
For making changes to personal data, 2FA is already mandatory today. It has also been available for login protection since last year. We take great care to ensure that our 2FA is both secure and easy to use.
Two-factor authentication serves as an additional security layer and effective protection method for your Scalable account against unauthorised access.
By linking your account to your smartphone, an independent second factor is added to verify your login request. Example: To login to your Scalable account on your laptop, you have to authorise the login attempt with the Scalable app on your smartphone (second factor).
This makes it much harder for unauthorised third parties to gain access to your account, even if they know your password. Thus, 2FA significantly reduces the risk of fraud through social engineering, phishing, data breaches, and similar methods.
