Multi-factor authentication provides an additional level of security to your PB Tech account. After being enabled, in addition to supplying your username and password to sign in, you are prompted for a code generated by your one-time password authenticator (for example, a password manager on one of your devices). By enabling multi-factor authentication, the only way someone other than you can sign in to your account is to know your username and password and have access to your one-time password secret.Multi-factor Authentication settings

Lost your code?
If you have lost 6-digit pin to authenticate your login you will need to contact the support team and they will take you through a manual verification process to ensure you are the correct person to access your account. They will then reset your multi-factor authentication to allow you log in to your account. This may take some time to allow you to access your account
