Protecting the account that controls the entire domain zone is paramount. This starts with setting up a strong password in combination with two-factor authentication (2FA) which requires a second piece of information for validation when logging in.
To enable 2FA for a Cloudflare account:
- Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard.
- Under the My Profile dropdown, click My Profile.
- Click the Authentication tab.
- Scroll down to the Two-Factor Authentication section and click to toggle switch and toggle it to the On position.
Full instruction are available on the Cloudflare Knowledge Base.
