How do I enable two-factor authentication in HubSpot CRM?

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security on top of your username and password when logging into HubSpot.

By requiring verification of the login through a second linked device, such as an SMS message or Google Authenticator, two-factor authentication helps make your system more secure.

How does two-factor authentication make it more secure?

For someone to log in to your account, they would need to have access to the physical device linked by the account owner. This significantly reduces the risk of potential third party unwanted access or intrusion.

How can I enable two-factor authentication? 

To set up two-factor authentication in HubSpot:

  • In your HubSpot account, click your account name in the top right corner, then click Profile & Preferences.
  • In the left sidebar menu, click Security.
  • In the Two-step verification section, click Set up primary method and follow the on-screen instructions. You’ll need access to the device you intend to use as your other login method (e.g., your mobile phone with SMS or the Google Authenticator app).
