New device authorization?

Innerspace just pushed an update and now I am being prompted for an authenticator from my Lavish Software account. I can't find anywhere in my account profile to setup an authenticator. I can do the email code but am I going to have to do this every time I start up IS now?

Please advise.

Re: New device authorization?

No, you select the 180 day option and you only need to do it every 180 days.

We do have this FAQ entry for the email option http://isboxer.com/wiki/FAQ#How_long_do ... n_email.3F

For using an authenticator, like Google Authenticator, on your phone, you can use https://www.lavishsoft.com/account/authenticator to get the QR code.


/e updated the FAQ to reference the authenticator option :).

No.

No, you select the 180 day option and you only need to do it every 180 days.

Device Authorization actually does not use the same expiration as the login, so even if you set it to 1 day, the only prompt you're getting the following day is the login prompt. You would not need to re-authorize your device just because you're logging in again later.


p.s. here's where this was described in the announcement 2 months ago http://isboxer.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=9405 :)

Re: New device authorization?

Thanks guys. I have it set up now with all my other Google authenticators. Why isn't there a link to the authenticator setup from the account management page(s)? I only posted because I couldn't find a link there or anything in the forums .... and then I see it is the 3rd post in the announcements and realize I really can't comprehend what the hell I am reading anymore. :lol:

I rarely visit the forums so you have to forgive me. I have been using IS since '05 and started with the early version of isboxer (before there was a gui) in '08 and I really appreciate the product.

Re: New device authorization?

I have more to implement for Authenticators before I planned to share the link for that option actually -- which will be found directly from the My Account page -- but you are more than welcome to use it now. ;)
