Two-factor authentication overview

The Thomson Reuters Account uses two-factor authentication (previously called multi-factor authentication or MFA) to check your identity and help make sure your account isn't compromised. It also adds another layer of protection so your account safety relies on more than a simple password.

Who is required to use two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication will soon be required for Onvio, NetFirm CS, NetClient CS, and CS Professional Suite products for staff and clients.
