Two Factor Authentication
The Two Factor Authentication section lets users add an extra layer of security to their account by requiring One-Time-Password (OTP) authentication when signing in to their account.
Speedyrails currently supports two-factor authentication by using a QR code and a compatible application such as Google Authenticator or Authy. Once you verify your two-factor login, you must enter a 6-digit One Time Password whenever you log in to Speedyrails.
Once you have logged in using your OTP, you have the option to trust the browser, OS, and IP where the login originated. Trusted browsers do not require Two-Factor authentication. This is mainly used for your tablet, laptop, or personal computer.
You can review your trusted browsers on the Trusted Browsers tab, and remove them by clicking Forget.
To remove all browsers from your trusted browsers, click Forget all devices.
Speedyrails provides a RESTful API that allows you to integrate custom tools and scripts to work with your account. For more information about using Speedyrails API, see our Getting Started with API guide.
