At Klaviyo, we take security seriously. With the increasing number of malicious actors constantly finding new ways to hack into accounts, it’s important to put the right defensive measures in place. Your Klaviyo account houses critical information about you, your customers, and your business, so it becomes essential to keep that data safe. That’s why we’ve added two-step authentication on your Klaviyo account to keep your information even more secure.
What is two-step authentication?
Typically, when you want to access your account, you must provide your username and password to prove you are who you claim to be. As we see more sophisticated methods where hackers phish for, or try to steal, usernames and passwords, it is no longer enough to trust only this combination. Here’s where two-step authentication can help.
After you provide a valid username and password, an additional step is needed before you can gain access to your account. The second authentication makes you provide a unique code that is tied to a specific physical device—your mobile phone—which creates an additional obstacle for a hacker to overcome.
When it comes to protecting your data, you can never be too careful. That’s why we strongly recommend all Klaviyo users enable two-step authentication on their Klaviyo account. If you’re an owner or administrator on the account, you can require two-step authentication for all users—a great way to ensure your entire account is more secure.
To get started, follow these instructions and further protect your account from phishing scams and hackers.Back to Blog Home
