    Can anybody point out where to find instructions for setting up Two-Step Authentication on QRZ? Are a smart phone or tablet required? I own neither.



    Can I use email AB8MA@arrl.net to receive the token?

    Looks like a cell phone or smart phone is required; email is not an option.

    I'm out.

    I am confused. It looks like I still need a mobile device. My only mobile device is a laptop. Is this sufficient to run the Google Authenticator?

    Do you feel more secure now ?

    QRZ now offers enhanced login security for its members. By using this option, you can protect your QRZ account from access by unauthorized individuals.

    Two Factor Authentication means that that two pieces of information, in addition to your user name, are required to complete the login process. One of those pieces of information is your QRZ password and the other is a time limited secret code, called a token, that is either generated by an App on your device, or is sent to you via text message. Once you have enabled 2FA, your password, even if accidentally shared or disclosed to others, will not compromise your account because your second factor (the token code) cannot be stolen. QRZ recommends this facility for all of its users.
