  1. What browsers are supported?
    We recommend downloading the current version of Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, or Safari. While you will be able to log in using Internet Explorer, we do not recommend this browser since it no longer supports modern security features.
  2. What is two-factor authentication?
    This is an additional security feature to help safeguard your account information. If you are not an existing mobile app user, you will need to enroll an email address and a phone number (mobile or landline). If you choose to use a mobile phone number, select receive one-time text message to receive a one-time verification code delivered as a text message. If you choose to use a landline number, then you must click “Try another way” to receive a phone call with the one-time verification code. Text messages cannot be delivered to a landline. After entering the verification code, if you are logging in from a secure computer you have the option to select “Don’t ask for code again on this computer.” This will avoid having to enter a verification code during each login. This option should never be selected on a shared or public computer.
