What is Multi-Factor Authentication?

Multi-Factor Authentication adds an extra layer of security to your Slate account through the use of a 6 digit passcode that regenerates every 30 seconds.  This helps protect your account with an extra layer of security to guarantee only you and your team access your assets.

Benefits of Using MFA

  • Bank level security for your Slate account
  • Free on all plans

Setting up Multi-Factor Authentication

  1. Sign into your Slate web dashboard
  2. Click on your initials located at the top right of your screen

  3. From the dropdown menu, click 'My Profile

  4. Under 'Multi-Factor Authentication (OFF)' hit 'Turn On'

 NOTE: If it says Multi-Factor Authentication (ON), you already have MFA enabled.

To setup MFA you’ll need a third-party authentication app on your device, like Google Authenticator (free) or 1Password (paid). It’s best to install the app on the device you normally use to access the Slate mobile app. Follow the steps provided by your chosen third-party authenticator to finish setup. Once enabled you’ll need to provide a unique, and frequently updated, password provided by your Authenticator App, every time you login to Slate.

Using Multi-Factor Authentication

Whenever you log into Slate on your mobile device. you’ll be asked to provide a six digit code generated by your chosen password app.
