What is two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication is a security feature that helps protect your Bento account in addition to your password. All business owner, admin, and employee accounts will be asked to enter a special verification code each time someone tries accessing your Bento account from a browser or device we don't recognize. 

Upon your next login attempt, you may be prompted to complete two-factor verification. A 6-digit verification code will be sent to the email address associated with your Bento login.

 If you are logging in via a regularly-used, personal, trusted device, check "Remember this device" to avoid further two-factor verification prompts.  If you are using a public or shared device to login, please do not check the box.

 

Troubleshooting:

Cannot Find Verification Code Email:

  • Check your spam folder
  • Check to ensure your corporate email server is accepting emails from Bento
    • If you believe your server is configured correctly, click "Resend Code" to receive another email with a new code
    • Otherwise, please reach out to our Support team by emailing support@bentoforbusiness.com

Verification Code Invalid:

  • Each verification code is only valid for 60 minutes.  Click "Resend Code" to receive another email with a new code
  • You may also choose to login again, and a new code will be emailed to you
  • If multiple codes have been requested, only the code contained in the most recent email is valid, assuming it has not already expired.

 

Mobile App Users: Before entering your verification code in the app, please make sure your mobile app is updated to the latest version from the app store. Once you have the new app installed, you may use the code to complete the verification process.
