New! Two-Factor Authentication for Deco App

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), which TP-Link just added to the Deco app, has a number of benefits over conventional login techniques. This feature greatly enhances the overall security of user accounts by adding a layer of protection to reduce the possibility of password breaches.

 

🔒Setting Up Two-Factor Authentication

To configure the feature, you will need your TP-Link ID and account Password, as well as access to the associated email address.

Please navigate to the sidebar settings in the upper left corner, then select "View Account" → "Login Security” to find the new Two-Factor Settings. After first enabling the feature, you will then be asked to verify your email address and confirm your trusted device.

For more information and detailed setup instructions, check out this FAQ:

How to Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) in the Deco App

Please Note: The update is rolling out gradually to users and is based on a variety of factors, other than app version. The feature requires the most recent update to the Deco App and may also be dependent on your model, firmware version, and which Deco Nodes you have in your network. Please be patient if you have not yet received the update while our team gets more information on the requirements.

 

🔒Two Methods for Receiving Authentication Codes

After enabling two-factor authentication, you will be asked to provide a 6-digit code whenever you log in from a new or untrusted device.

  • Deco App Notification Delivered to Trusted Devices
  • Email Notification with Code

 

After Enabling Two-Factor Authentication, you can see a list of your trusted devices and remove access for any you do not know of. This can be found after setup under Login Activity and Trusted Devices.

  @Riley_S when should we see this security setting in the Deco app?  Currently running version 3.7.33 Deco app and login security option is not there.

Hey @shleets ,

I am not actually too sure which version of the Deco app contains the 2FA feature and will need to reach out for the specifics; (I will update this thread when hear the official version). A Coworker has iOS version 3.7.39 - however, we believe that there are additional minimum requirements beyond a simple app update.

Normally, our app updates and features and gradually rolled out, so it may take a few days for the update or feature to appear, and it may be partially dependent on your model of mesh nodes.. When your Deco App first receives the feature, you will be notified and given an option to configure 2FA right away, otherwise the FAQ linked above has a guide on where you can find the setting.
