  • ASPnix client area now supports Two-Factor Authentication for increased security!

    13 comments December 7th, 2013 9500

    We are very pleased to announce to all of our customers that our billing (client) area now supports Two-Factor Authentication to increase the security of your ASPnix billing account! For those that do not know what Two-Factor Authentication is, it is basically a means of authenticating yourself with an additional layer of authentication, such as a card, a pin, a finger reader etc. When you login to the ASPnix client area, you are also asked for a verification code, which changes every 30 seconds, this helps prevent unauthorized access to your account! Read on for more details!

    How do you activate it? Simple!

    1. Make sure you have an iPhone, Android, or a Windows based smart phone and install the “Google Authenticator” app
    2. Visit https://billing.aspnix.com/clientarea.php and login to your ASPnix billing account
    3. Once logged in, visit https://billing.aspnix.com/clientarea.php?action=security
    4. Follow the steps and complete the setup of Two-Factor Authentication
    5. WRITE DOWN AND SAVE THE BACKUP CODE. If you ever lose your device or do not have access to the device this code is required to gain access to your account

    Now each time you login to the client area you will login with your normal credentials, once successful you will be asked for the validation code which you can get from the Google Authenticator app. The code changes every 30 seconds, so it will be different each time you login.

    We recommend that all users that are able to use the Google Authenticator app enable this feature. If you have any questions, please contact our support department.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix!

  2. Suzanne – As per point #1 – You will need an iPhone or Android based smart phone. We do not see the code, the code is not stored on our system anywhere, it is generated at random by the Google Authenticator application and it changes every 30 seconds. If you do not have an iPhone or Android based smart phone, you will not be able to use this feature. My apologies!

  4. That’s great improvement. Suppose I can stay with old simple authentication style?

  5. Yes, you can continue using old style.

  6. I would like to use this feature. But I have a Windows Phone App. Is there going to be an app for this platform?

  7. I have a Windows Phone, of course. Not a Windows Phone App. 🙂

  8. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/authenticator/021dd79f-0598-e011-986b-78e7d1fa76f8 try this one or http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/virtual-tokenfactor/8a30b055-500a-4d37-af06-a5121b386ac4. I am not sure if it will work as I no longer have any Windows phones to test on.

    Let us know if they work for you!

  9. Anyone tried windows phone application with success? I have an android tablet , but prefer using windows phone because the tablet is not always with me. Also a windows 8 application would be welcomed (for surface or standard windows 8 users).

  10. You can try the links I posted above, let us know if either of them work for you.

    Thanks!

  11. Authenticator app for Windows Phone, from Microsoft, works just like Google Authenticator.

    I am using for ASPnix and several other services.

    BTW, how can I enable 2-factor-authentication for panel.aspnix.com?

  12. We’ve not announced it yet, but if you login as you normally would, under “Account Menu” click “Account Security” and follow the steps just like you did with our Client Area.

  13. Just switched to two-factor authentication. The “Authenticator” app for Windows Phone works perfectly.
