We know it’s been long requested, and we’ve been working on it for a really long time to make sure it runs perfectly: two factor authentication is now available at Namecheap. In short, for those of you who don’t know what this means, it’s another layer of security that’s required to access your account. A password only goes as far as the person who knows it. And if that password gets leaked, your account information is vulnerable. 2FA adds a second layer of security: phone authentication, making sure your account is only accessed by the person who knows the password AND who gets the text message we send you upon an attempt to access your account.
We’re really excited to roll this out. It’s disabled by default, but you can turn it on by logging into your Namecheap account and accessing Two Factor Authentication under Personal Settings. More details can be found here.
The rest is up to you. We hope you’ll try it out in the name of security, as we want your domains to stay safe and sound in your account — don’t you?
