Hello there, Saleshandy users! ๐Ÿ‘‹

Wanna know about something that adds superhero-level protection to your email? It's called Two-Factor Authentication, 2-Step Verification, or TFA for short! ๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™‚๏ธโœ‰๏ธ

What is Two-Factor Authentication (TFA)?

Picture this: When you log into your email, you might get a special code on your phone or another email. It's like a secret handshake between you and your email account. That's the Two-Factor Authentication doing its thing! ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ”’

TFA is like your email's superhero guard, ensuring only you can open the gates. It stops sneaky hackers and gives you peace of mind. ๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ

When the two-factor authentication is enabled for your email accounts, you must generate an app-specific password from your email account settings to connect it with the Saleshandy application using SMTP / IMAP integration.

How to Generate the App-Specific Password?

To know how you can generate the app-specific password, please click on your ESP (Email service provider) from the below list and follow the steps mentioned there:

If you don't find your email service provider in the list above, you can contact your IT person or the email account support team to help set up your App-Specific Password.

  • Please make sure you copy the app password when generated because the password is visible only once.

  • If your ESP does not support app-specific passwords, you can disable the two-factor authentication for your email account and use the regular password to sign in at Saleshandy.

So, email hero, now you know the secret of Two-Factor Authentication! It's like having a shield for your email kingdom.
