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

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 a someone else having your second-factor information are highly unlikely. In an effort to provide more secure and protected software application to all licensees, PitBullTax Software has 2-Factor Authentication available to all users at no additional cost.
