Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security system that verifies a user’s identity by requiring multiple credentials.
In CAKE, the first form is the username and password, and the second form is the unique code generated by an application on the user's mobile device.
MFA is only for CAKE customers and not available for Advertisers, Buyers or Affiliates.
CAKE is excited to announce a bundle of new features focused on security for our users. The major milestone in this release is Multi-Factor Authentication.
Recover Account vs. Change Password
Contact Card > Recover Account button has been added to allow users to recover an account in the event that a user is unable to login. Clicking Recover Account clears the Username, Password, and MFA Code. This will require users to set a new password and set up MFA again. If you wish to only reset the user's password but not the MFA device, you can click the Reset Password/Change Password button. Note that Change Password is only displayed on your contact card.
A new system Alert for Login From New IP/Device, this alert will be sent to users who have logged in from a new location or device. A simple email informing the user of the login IP and Device.
