You now have an option to enable Two-factor authentication (2FA) on your Hugo’s Way account. You can quickly protect your account and data from unauthorised access attempts with this simple guide.
2FA is completely free and can be turned off in the future if you do not want to use it anymore.
Part 1: Get your Hugo’s Way account ready to scan a QR code

You can download these apps from the App Store and Google Play.
Log into your Hugo’s Way account.

Two-Factor Authentication is now enabled and will be available when you next sign in to your account. If you are having an issue scanning the QR code please click the “Unable to scan?” link and enter the code on the screen.
