2FA in ImageCapture: have you set it up yet?

Posted: 29 March 2024

In an era where digital security is playing an increasingly prominent role, it is essential to take the protection of our online accounts seriously. With the ongoing threat of cyber attacks and the increasing complexity of digital threats, implementing robust security measures such as two-step authentication (2FA) has become critical.


Two-factor authentication in ImageCapture

One of the most effective methods to strengthen the security of online accounts is to implement 2FA, also known as multiple authentication (MFA). This approach requires not only entering a password, but also a second authentication step, such as a unique code sent to a trusted device. This additional level of security makes it significantly more difficult for cybercriminals to gain unauthorized access to accounts, even if they obtain the password.

In this guide, we will explain step by step how to set up and use 2FA in ImageCapture, an essential step to ensure the security of your account and protect your data from potential threats.Volg de onderstaande stappen nauwkeurig om je digitale veiligheid te versterken en met vertrouwen gebruik te maken van ImageCapture.
