2FA will be OFF, by default. Fans and Creators will be prompted to set it up when they visit their Profile Settings page for the first time after signing up with the help of a notification.
To turn 2FA ON, users will first need to verify their email (in case the mandatory email verification was turned off at the time of their registration), else it can be straightaway switched on.
To turn OFF the second-level of authentication, users will be requested to input the code sent to their registered email, without which this setting will continue to remain ON.
When logged in, to change their registered email address, the fan/creator will be required to input the code sent to the original email address, to prevent any unauthorized change.
Users can use the checkbox available at login to mark a device as ‘Trusted’ after entering the 2FA code. This will ensure they do not have to enter the code again for that device.
Users can check the list of all their "Trusted Devices", with details like device type, last login, IP address, and geo location. They can mark a device as Untrusted, so it requires 2FA again.
A notification will be sent to the registered email if a login has been noticed from a new device with failed 2FA and also when a new "Trusted Device" has been added after successful 2FA.
