Strong authentication for login into Fidoo application

We are constantly striving to improve our services and the security of the Fidoo application. For this reason, we are introducing strong authentication for login
as an integral part of both the mobile and web-based Fidoo applications for all users starting from May 18, 2020. Strong authentication helps you enhance the Fidoo application access security and prevents casual misuse.

What is login with strong authentication

Current security access of the application is being extended by adding one more feature to authentication during your login. Besides the username and password, we are adding a verification SMS code. After filling in your username and password, a text message will automatically come to your mobile phone number. The principle is the same as if you are logging into your online banking.

2-phases to set up strong authentication in the Fidoo app

1. Verify the phone number

  1. After login, at the top right corner, click on the black menu with your username and select ‚My Profile‚.
  2. If your phone number is not correct, click the icon in the ‚Basic Information‚ section to edit it.
  3. Enter your current and valid mobile number in to a field ‚Enter a new phone number‚ and click ‚Save the number change‚ button.
  4. Then enter a SMS verification code your received and click the ‚Continue‚ button.

We recommend that you change your mobile phone number in the late afternoon hours. It can take up to 12 hours for all our systems to update, and until then, all verification codes may still go to the original phone number (for example, for online payments).
