Why set up Authy? 

 

Once setup, Authy will send you a push notification through the Authy app on your mobile phone, that requires you to approve it anytime you log into Alfred. This is a valuable extra layer of security that ensures there is not anyone else accessing your Alfred account other than you. You can turn this feature off in your Alfred account settings.

Military-grade cyber security

Alfred utilizes military-grade cyber security, on-premises security monitoring, third party security audits, and other industry best practices to protect you.

Enhanced security with 2FA

Further protect your Alfred account with our built-in two-factor authentication. Enabling Authy in your security preferences creates one more layer of protection by also requiring your identity to be verified through your mobile device each time you log in.
