Two-factor authentication is a method for securing the account, there are several methods available however in VoIP.ms we offer 2 options.


Using TOTP as the authentication method allows an extra layer of security on your VoIP.ms account which requires a device with access to such authenticator app as those mentioned above.

Enabling TOTP will disable 2 step Authentication (OTP) via email as both are mutually exclusive.
