At Semrush we place a high value on the creation, use, and sharing of information to fulfill our mission. It is our collective responsibility to take precautions to protect the security, privacy, and integrity of our information systems, personal data about users as well as of our services, employees, suppliers and other individuals for a variety of business purposes.
To better protect all of our and your information, we implemented two-factor authentication, a new safety measure to make reasonable security arrangements to protect the personal data that we possess or control and prevent unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, or similar risks.
What is two-factor authentication?
Two-factor Authentication (also known as 2-step verification) is a system that employs two methods to identify an individual. More secure than reusable passwords, when a token’s random number is combined with a secret PIN, the resulting passcode provides positive identification, and more reliable user authentication. It usually requires the user to supply additional contact information for the PIN during the registration process. PINs can be delivered by email.
Why do we use two-factor authentication?
In order for us to keep your data safe, it is important that our users’ credentials are used only by authorized users. Implementing two-factor authentication is one of the simplest and most effective actions our company can take to improve the security of your data. Two-factor authentication requires users to provide two forms of validation to access their online account. By requiring more than one factor during the login process, it is far more difficult for a hacker to gain access to user accounts. Even if someone obtains a user’s credentials, the second form of authentication can help prevent access to the user account.
How to setup your two-factor authentication
- Log in to your Semrush account.
- Turn on the Two-factor authentication in the Profile settings of your account (tab Security).
- When you sign in to your Semrush account, an email with a 6-digit code is sent to the email address you provided when registering with semrush.com. Enter this code to complete the verification process.
