Enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on Cloudflare

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.

After enabling 2FA in a Cloudflare┬« account, any TOTP (Time-based One Time Password) application like Google Authentication or Authy may be used.

To enable 2FA for a Cloudflare account:

  1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard.
  2. Under the My Profile dropdown, click My Profile.
  3. Click the Authentication tab. 
  4. 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.
