Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) will be available as an added online security for your QNET Virtual Office soon! With more and more work happening in the online space, we are getting ahead of the curve to provide additional safety to our systems. This means that when you log on to your QNET Virtual Office, you will be asked for additional verification so that you are safe from cyber-attacks.
Why Is Multi-Factor Authentication Important?
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an account verification method that requires two or more identification factors to log in to your account. What this means is that instead of just using your username and password, you will also need to input other information to confirm that it is really you and not a fraudster. By taking this additional step, you will be protected from identity theft and fraud. With the help of MFA, your QNET Virtual Office will be more secure.
How Does MFA Affect My QNET Virtual Office?
The QNET Virtual Office that you know and love will remain the same, except now, you can rest easy knowing that you will be protected doubly thanks to MFA. Your personal information, your rank dashboards, your self-service portal, your QAccount and all your personal information in the Virtual Office will be twice as safe with the new verification process. Detailed information about the complete process will be available in your Virtual Office soon.
Speaking on the importance of MFA, QNET Chief Information Officer, Ivan Woo said, “Multi-factor authentication adds extra security that prevents unauthorised users from gaining access to our IRs private information. Seeing that it is relatively easy for hackers to find out a username and password, this additional step will secure all critical data so that you can have a worry-free online experience.”
“We are so pleased we are able to provide additional security to our distributors with our enhanced multi-factor authentication process. It is a tried and tested way to strengthen online protection while also saving our IRs against any cyber-attacks,” said QNET CEO Malou Caluza.
The new MFA service will be rolled out globally in phases. Stay tuned to your virtual office to find out when it’s your turn. Keep an eye out, and don’t forget to tell your team.
