Two Factor Authentication

Turn on 2FA for added account security

Two-Factor Authentication is an optional, additional security feature on your ThisData account that comes in to play at the login page. When switched on, you would enter your normal username and password, and then if that is authenticated, we will ask you for a special security code. The code will be delivered to your mobile phone either via text message (SMS) or by the Authy app if you have that installed.
