2. Turn on 2-Factor Authentification
Enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) on your account can block up to 99% of automated attacks. To ensure the security of our users, Isomer requires all users to enable 2FA on their accounts.
Follow the steps listed here to enable your 2FA . Note that you can pick any method of authentification out of TOTP, SMS, or security key.
CAN WE RECCO SMS?
GitHub will prompt you to save your recovery codes. The purpose of these codes are to guarantee you are the owner of your account in case your 2FA fails, such as when you lose your phone.
We strongly encourage saving these codes somewhere secure.
3. Request for access to Isomer’s GitHub
After setting up your 2FA, you will need access to your site to start editing it on IsomerCMS.
You should see a banner notifying you that
You are now a member of Isomer!
