2-Factor Autentication (2FA)

2-Factor Authentication (2FA) is an optional extra layer of security used to make sure that PitBullTax Users trying to gain access to a PitBullTax online account are who they say they are.

How 2-Factor Authentication works

First, PitBullTax users will enter their name and a password. After receiving a username and password, the site sends users a unique one-time passcode via SMS text message. Then, instead of immediately gaining access, the user will be required to enter a one-time passcode sent to the user´s phone via SMS text message.

Secure and protected software application

With 2-Factor Authentication, a potential compromise of just one of these factors (username/password or access to mobile phone) won´t unlock the account. So, even if your password is stolen, or your phone is lost, the chances of somebody else having your second-factor information are highly unlikely. In an effort to provide a more secure and protected software application to all licensees, PitBullTax Software has 2-Factor Authentication available to all users at no additional cost.
