Domain SecurityProtect your account with two-factor authentication and account lock, at no extra cost.
Domain security is a top priority here at Dynadot. All of our Dynadot accounts come with two factor authentication at no extra cost.
When you sign up for your Dynadot account, we require you to choose a username and password, typical of many websites, but we also ask for you to enter a "birthday" as an extra layer of security. Your "birthday" should be a date that you will remember (not necessarily your birthday) that you will use to unlock your account. It is important that you don't forget your "birthday" because if you do, you'll need to submit a forgot birthday request and we will need to verify whether or not you are the actual account owner to ensure the security of your account.
Dynadot's account lock feature requires additional verification - beyond just username and password - before you can make changes to your account information, password, or domains. This is an extra layer of protection that helps prevent account and domain hijacking. To unlock your account you'll need to enter your birthday under the "My Info" tab and the "Account Lock" subtab.
Two Factor Security
In addition to the security that comes with every Dynadot account, we also offer two security options that you can add to your account: SMS Authentication for customers without a smartphone or the Google Authenticator app for your Android or iPhone. Setting up these extra domain security measures is optional, but recommended as it increases the security of your Dynadot account by requiring two factor authentication.
