Two-step sign in, also known as two-factor authentication or two-step verification, is a security process involving two separate authentication methods performed one after another to verify that an individual requesting access to an account is the owner of said account.
Within GoCardless, the two-step sign in process consists of entering an email address and accompanying password, followed by either the receipt of an SMS text message to your specified mobile phone number containing a code or generating a code through an authenticator app, which you will then need to enter to move successfully through step two of the login process.
