At Built.io, we understand that data security is of the utmost importance. We believe that strong security mechanisms enhance data security, prevent accounts from being hacked, and allow only authorized users to access important data.
Keeping this in mind, we have introduced several security enhancements for Built.io Flow Express. Below are the highlights.
Introducing Two-Factor Authentication
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a way of verifying a user’s identity by using a combination of two different verification methods. In Built.io Flow Express, the first factor is the usual sign-in via email address and password. The second factor is code verification received on the registered mobile either via SMS or through an Authy app. This ensures that your account data remains secure even if your account password has been compromised. Learn how to enable 2FA for your account.
Limited Login Attempts
We have put a limit to the number of failed login attempts a user can make. After six consecutive invalid login attempts, your account will be locked out. If this happens, you need to contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance. Please note that you active flows will not be affected if your account has been locked.
Password Change History
Built.io Flow Express has started maintaining your password history. Consequently, if you change or create a new password hereafter, it cannot be the same as any of your previous five passwords.
We have integrated reCAPTCHA into our system. Now each time you reset your password via the ‘Forgot password’ link or request to resend activation email, you will be asked to solve a reCAPTCHA. This ensures that the user trying to login is a human, and not a bot.
While these features do not completely eliminate all potential threats, it makes a lot harder for attackers to break in your account. If you have more suggestions on security, kindly write to us on email@example.com.
