Login protection is an additional layer of protection that Tencent Cloud provides for logins. An additional identity verification credential is required after the correct username and password are entered.
After login protection is enabled, you must verify your identity every time you log in to the Tencent Cloud website. This prevents others from logging in to your account even if they have cracked your password.
Log in to the Tencent Cloud Console and go to Security Settings. Go to Account Protection Verification > Login Protection, and select from the following accordingly:
|Operation Protection Type||Description|
|Enable MFA||After entering your username and password in the login page, you will be redirected to the MFA verification page where you need to enter the correct MFA password before you can log in to your account.|
|Enable SMS verification||After entering your username and password in the login page, you will be redirected to the SMS verification page where you need to get a verification code on your phone and enter it correctly before you can log in to your account.|
|Do not enable||Secondary verification will not be required.|
