Setting Up Two-Step Verification on Egnyte

Moving forward all users will be required to use two step verification to log into Egnyte. Please go to your Egnyte user profile to enable Two Step Verification before it is enabled by default. You will need to sign out and in again to finish your setup.

Once you have signed in again, follow the steps below to either set up SMS verification or App verification.

Using SMS

  1. Begin by logging into Egnyte with your username/email address and password.
  2. Once entered, you’ll see a screen for Two Factor Authentication. If you don’t have the Authy Mobile App installed (recommended), click the Use Phone number option.

  3. If you have a mobile phone number registered, you’ll have two options to choose from: Use text messages or Use voice call. If you have a landline registered, you’ll only have the option to Use voice call. Make your selection and click Next.

    Authy does not allow the use of Virtual Numbers (Google Voice, Magic Jack, Skype…) for text message or voice call authentication. As an alternate option, you can use the Authy Desktop App, Mobile App, or Google Chrome plugin.
