Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), which TP-Link just added to the Deco app, offers a number of benefits over conventional login techniques. This feature greatly enhances the overall security of user accounts by adding a layer of protection to reduce the possibility of password breaches.

Here is the setup process

1. Launch the Deco app and sign in using your TP-Link account. The 2FA prompt will automatically appear if you are signing in for the first time.

2. Tap "Turn on Two-Step Verification."

If you prefer not to activate 2FA at this time, you can select "Maybe Later".

NOTE: The 2FA prompt will only appear automatically once.

If you would prefer to activate 2FA later, please navigate to the sidebar settings in the upper left corner, then select "View Account" → "Login Security."

3. Input your TP-Link account ID and password, then tap "Confirm."

4. A verification code will be sent to your email. Enter this code and tap "Turn On."

If you did not receive the verification code, please tap “Resend Code”.

5. Select the trusted devices from the current login list. With Two-Factor Authentication enabled, both a password and verification code will be required for logins from unrecognized devices.

6. Once you've designated your trusted devices, you will be provided two methods for receiving codes. By default, codes are sent as notifications through the Deco app.

However, if you're unable to receive the code via the Deco app notification, you have the alternative option to receive verification codes via email instead. Please tap “Didn’t receive a code?”, then tap “Send Code” to receive the code via email.

7. If you want to remove trusted Devices, please navigate to “Login Security” → ”Trusted Devices”, you will find a list of all trusted devices. Tap the “X” next to the device you want to remove, then tap “Remove” to remove the device from your Trusted Devices list.

8. To review the devices signed in to your TP-Link Account, please navigate to “Login Security” → ” "Login Activity”. Here, you can view the login location and time of each device. If you find an unfamiliar device in the list, please change the password of the TP-Link account.
