Enable 2-factor authentication on CloudPanel

by Thạch Phạm

Two-factor authentication on CloudPanel brings more safety and security to your VPS and data administration. In this article, AZDIGI will show you how to enable 2-factor authentication on CloudPanel in the simplest way.

I. Overview

What is 2-factor security?

Two-Factor Security, or 2FA for short, is an extra step in your regular login activity. Without 2FA, you will only enter your username and password to log into the system, your account. The password section will be the only layer of protection for the account. Meanwhile, the added second layer of security will help you better protect your account.

Why should you use 2-factor security?

Two-factor security is the best way to protect yourself from attacks that steal sensitive user account information, spoof login pages, and other account-hijacking methods. With 2-factor security, you can be more assured if your account information is accidentally exposed In addition, it will be difficult for others to access your accounts because there will be obstacles in the 2-factor security step.

So for CloudPanel, how to enable this feature? In this article, AZDIGI will guide you in detail, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Install the Google Authenticator Application

To use the 2-factor authentication feature, you first need to install it on your mobile device or computer software that can scan QR codes. I will use the most popular app, Google Authenticator.

Step 2: Set up 2-factor authentication on CloudPanel

To enable 2-factor authentication (2FA) on CloudPanel, you access CloudPanel under the link: https://IP:8443/ and login with the account you need to set up 2-factor authentication.

After login successfully, at the Dashboard interface, you access the user name of the account (1) => click Account (2).

Step 3: Check the operation of 2-factor authentication

After the configuration is complete, exit the CloudPanel admin page and log in to check if 2FA is working or not.

As I checked, after logging back in, when I just logged in with User information, the 2FA popup immediately appeared as shown below:
