To ensure maximum login security, GeoArm’s Alarm.com subscribers will be required to enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). Two-Factor Authentication requires the entry of an additional code at login, providing an extra layer of protection if passwords are compromised.
At the end of August, subscribers will be prompted to set up 2FA and verify their phone, tablet, or laptop as a trusted device when they log in to the mobile app or customer website. They can choose to receive 2FA verification codes via e-mail, SMS, or authenticator app. This update will roll out gradually.
Please note that 2FA can only be associated with one account, so creating secondary logins per user is recommended to provide the best experience for all users during their first login.
