Quantum Cloud | 2-Factor Authentication

Quantum Cloud is protected with 2-factor authentication. The guide below shows how to download and install the 2-factor authentication app we recommend, Twilio Authy.

Twilio Authy is straightforward and free to use. It can be installed through Google Play (Android users) or the App Store (Apple users).

Install the app to your chosen device, entering your mobile phone number and email address. You will then be sent a PIN to enter to verify your phone or tablet.
