Two-Factor Authentication Now Available on myICLUB.com

9/17/2018

myICLUB.com now supports two-factor authentication for member logins.

Two-factor authentication is an industry-standard security measure that can help protect your user account on the myICLUB.com website.

When you enable two-factor authentication for your account, you add a second step to the login process. Not only will you need your username and password, but you will also need to enter a one-time verification code that is emailed to you when you attempt to log in.

To use two-factor authentication, you must first enable it for your myICLUB.com account:

  • Log in to the myICLUB.com website and select your club.
  • Click the People tab at the top of the page.
  • On the People page, click My Preferences in the left-hand navigation panel.
  • On the Preferences page, click the Change authentication settings link.
  • On the Change Authentication Settings page, check the box to Enable 2-step authentication, then click the Save Settings button.

Now, whenever you log in to myICLUB.com, you will enter your user name and password as before, but then you will be prompted to enter a one-time verification code that is generated and emailed to the email address connected to your myICLUB account. Copy and paste the code from the email message into the field (be sure not to include any spaces or other characters), then click the button to log in.

One-time verification codes are time-limited and expire after a few minutes. If your code expires, simply request a new one and it will be generated and emailed to you.

You must repeat the above process each time that you log into the myICLUB.com website. It only takes a few extra moments, but it greatly increases the security of your account. Once two-factor authentication is enabled, someone who simply knows your password cannot access your account. At a minimum, we recommend that all club treasurers and administrators use two-step authentication.

To disable two-factor authentication, uncheck the box on the Change Authentication Settings page and save your settings.
