Two-factor authentication prevents a stranger from accessing a Rentec Direct customer’s account and private data even if the stranger obtains or guesses the password, since he would also need the secret code.
Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) December 30, 2014
Leaders in property management software and tenant screening services, Rentec Direct, introduced an update last week to their online software access with two-factor authentication. Rentec Direct values the security of their clients’ data and constantly reviews the software’s internal security practices to ensure the best possible protection.
Two-factor authentication verifies a client's identity each time he or she logs into Rentec Direct’s online program through a secondary measure. Rentec Direct’s developers created a two-factor security measure for the program by requiring customers to enter a secret code if the system does not recognize the computer seeking access. If the system does not recognize the computer, a secret code is automatically sent to the account holder’s mobile number, which the customer can use to to complete the login process. Two-factor authentication prevents a stranger from accessing a Rentec Direct customer’s account and private data even if the stranger obtains or guesses the password, since he would also need the secret code.
Rentec Direct offers online software for property managers and landlords who want a simple and secure way to track and manage tenants, properties and owners. The software also provides professional accounting and reporting services, online rent payments and tenant screening services through credit and background checks.
To further ensure the safety of their clients’ data, Rentec Direct recommends the following guidelines when creating a secure password. Never use the same password for more than one website. Passwords should always be at least 10 characters in length and include lower-case, upper-case, special characters, and numbers. Common names or words should never be used as or in a password. Always keep passwords private and never write them into a document stored on a computer (unless it is encrypted).
