What is two-factor authentication?
How 2 FA works
Two-factor authentication for your software
PrognoCIS includes 2FA biometric fingerprint authentication. This fulfills the idea that the second step should be something that no one else can possess. If your password was compromised, a hacker could easily log in without the 2FA feature enabled. With fingerprint authentication, a hacker would not gain access even with your username and password.
Fingerprint authentication is simple to enable and use. Patients can find the function located under the profile icon and on the main dashboard. Once you tap on the “enable fingerprint” option, you’re directed to the “OTP Screen”. Once you’ve arrived at this screen, the app will send a one time password to the mobile device on record for your account. You’ll have 30 seconds to use the password to proceed with the process.
Once the password is accepted, the app directs you to a screen to scan your fingerprint. From there, your unique fingerprint is saved as a secondary authentication method.
After fingerprint authentication is enabled, a confirmation email is sent to the account on record and the option is added to your login screen. Once it’s enabled, you’ll also have the option of using your unique fingerprint to log in, rather than your username and password. If you decide at any time to discontinue using your fingerprint authentication, you also have the option of disabling the feature.
PrognoCIS, offers this feature for patients and physicians. When the feature is enabled, no one would be able to access your account, even if they had access to your device. Fingerprint authentication is one of the most secure methods you can use to protect your information. The feature is easy to set up and can be enabled or disabled based on your preference. We do highly recommend using it to keep your data secure.
