It is not allowed to share your login information with others.
Protect your account and identity
Using only usernames and passwords to protect your BTH account is not optimal from a security perspective. Increasingly, our accounts are exposed to attacks and intrusion attempts and we need to be able to ensure that only authorized users log in and have access to information and functions in our systems.
Two-factor authentication (2FA) – a safer way to login
You can easily strengthen your protection against account hijacking and data loss by using an extra factor in addition to your password when you log in.
When 2FA is used in connection with login, it becomes much more difficult for unauthorized persons to access devices and digital services than when only one factor, such as a password, is used.
FAQ two-factor authentication
Two-factor authentication means that you use an extra factor in addition to your password to confirm that you are you. This can be for example your mobile number or the Microsoft Authenticator app. The additional factor provides extra security and better protection against account hijacking and data loss.
Once you’ve activated two-factor authentication for your account, log in by first entering your password, then the method you have chosen yourself. If you have chosen MS Authenticator, you can confirm your login either with a numeric code, your fingerprint or facial recognition.
– If you have used two-factor login once, you are logged in until further notice and do not need to repeat the login with two factors again.
– If you log in with a device or password that you have not used before, you will need to log in with two factors again.
– Incognito window requires two-factor login each time.
