Multi Factor Authentication

Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) was implemented for all Web1040 Pro cloud-based applications beginning September 7, 2017. MFA is a security system that uses multiple forms of identification to control program access. Accessing online Web1040 Pro accounts will require two forms of authentication and must be completed for all devices and Internet browsers. One factor of authentication is the user’s password; the other, a six-digit code sent to the user’s cell phone or e-mail address when the user attempts to login. If entered correctly, the code will be verified, and the user will be granted access to the software.

The authentication process must be repeated periodically; time intervals are setup under Configuration. The MFA verification process must be completed per device and per Internet browser. 

Authenticating on a New Computer

  • When logging on from a device or browser not previously used, Web1040 Pro displays the Account Verification page:
  • Web1040 Pro verifies your identity to ensure all program access is legitimate. To verify your account, use the following steps:
  1. Select preferred delivery option. You can receive your code through email or text.
  2. Click Send Code.
  3. Check your email or text messages to find the code.
  4. Type the code in the “Verification Code” box and click Verify.
  5. Web1040 Pro verifies the code and displays the Welcome page.

NOTEIf you have not used a device for an extended amount of time, you will be required to re-authenticate the device.
