Two-factor login and updated terms

Now you can choose to activate Two-factor authentication for login at PinToMind! It significantly increases the security of your account. At the same time, we have updated our Data Processing Agreement with a new sub-data supplier, Sveve, which we now use to send SMSes with one-time codes.

Two-factor authentication - what and why?

Two-factor authentication provides extra security around login, and is used by an increasing number of digital services. The term Two-factor authentication comes from the fact that you authenticate yourself, confirm who you are, using two factors when you log in.

When logging in to PinToMind on a new device, the two factors are password and single use code. This provides significantly better protection than passwords alone, because the single use code is only available with physical access to your mobile phone.

Four smart options

We offer four options in relation to activating two-factor authentication with us. You decide which ones you want to use, but we recommend that you add all for best functionality and security:

New in the Data Processing Agreement

In connection with the introduction of Two-factor authentication, we had to find a service to be able to send the single use codes by SMS. We have chosen Sveve, a Norwegian service that stores and processes all data in the EU/EEA.

We have added a new section about Sveve in our Data Processing Agreement, in the list of sub-processors. See the relevant section here if you would like to have a closer look at this. At the bottom of the updated agreement, you can also download the signed version of the updated Data Processing Agreement.
