Use 2-Step Authentication for Remote Access

This article demonstrates how to set up 2-Step Authentication for the router's remote access, and add a layer of security to the router. When 2-Step Authentication is enabled, the Internet user will not only need the administrator password, but also the Auth Code sent to the specific phone number or email address, to log into the router's management page.
Note: 2-Step Authentication only supports login from WAN interfaces, does not support admin accounts login on LAN.

1. To send the Auth Code via SMS, create an SMS service profile at Objects Setting >> SMS / Mail Service Object >> SMS Provider page.
