Additional Information

DNS Wizard is committed to providing a secure environment for our customers. For this reason, if you enable Two Factor Authentication and you later loose your mobile device or accidently delete the Google Authenticator App, you may not be able to access your account again.  DNS Wizard will not disable Two Factor Authentication on any customer account. We recommend adding an additional user on your account so at least two staff members have full access.
