New Honeycomb feature: Two-Factor Authentication

Honeycomb just received an extra layer of security: You can now make your account even safer with the Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) feature!

Please note that enabling Two-Factor Authentication currently means that an account can only be accessed by the user with the code. We are working on a supporting feature that will allow several people to access the same 2FA-protected account.

How to set up Two-Factor Authentication in Honeycomb

You can find the Two-Factor Authentication function under 'Account' in Honeycomb. In the drop-down menu, select Security.

TFA Step 1: Security

Here, you can change your password and enable Two-Factor Authentication. Select the latter.

TFA Step 2: Choose Two-Factor Authentication

This will lead you to a confirmation page. Click on Next to set up two-factor authentication.

TFA Step 3: Enable TFA

You can then choose an authentication method: Token generator or Text message.

TFA Step 4: Token or Text Message

Token generator:

Choose Token generator to add a verification code to an authenticator account (such as Google Authenticator), which will provide you with a token when you log in to Honeycomb


TFA Choice 1: Token

Text message:

Choose this method to receive a text message with a verification code when you log in to Honeycomb.

TFA Choice 2: Text Message

We recommend creating a backup token that you can use when you do not have your phone. You can add it after adding verification via text message on the Security page in Honeycomb:

TFA Choice 2: Backup Tokens

When you have gone through these steps, the 2FA method is enabled From now on, when you log in with your Honeycomb account from a new location, you will receive a code. This code allows you to log into Honeycomb with an extra layer of security.

If you have questions about this new feature or the Honeycomb platform, we would be happy to schedule a meeting with you!
