Can I enable two-factor authentication on my Synology NAS?
Yes, you can enable two-factor authentication on your Synology NAS by following these steps:
1) Log in to your Synology NAS account as an administrator.
2) Open the Control Panel and go to the "Security" section.
3) Click on the "Advanced" tab.
4) Scroll down to the "Account Protection" section and click on "Enable two-factor authentication".
5) You will be prompted to choose the method for two-factor authentication. Synology NAS supports various authentication methods such as Google Authenticator, SMS authentication, and email verification.
6) Choose your preferred method and follow the on-screen instructions to set it up.
7) Depending on the method you choose, you may need to download and install the corresponding app, configure it with your Synology NAS account, or provide your mobile number for SMS authentication.
8) Once the two-factor authentication is set up, every time you log in to your Synology NAS account, you will be required to provide both your password and the second-factor authentication code or verification.
Enabling two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to your Synology NAS, ensuring that even if your password is compromised, unauthorized access to your NAS is prevented without the second-factor authentication code or verification. This is particularly important for protecting sensitive data and preventing unauthorized access to your NAS.
