Account security has become a hot topic recently on a global scale. There are seemingly endless stories about password databases from popular sites being leaked. Because password reuse is common, we've started to see brute force login attempts using these leaked passwords.

Maintaining account security has become a big priority. To help this, Xenforo have added a few new features including Two-Step (or Two-Factor) Verification.

How it works is you first need to download an app (iOS or Android only) which needs to be registered to Yellow and Black. Once done, each time you login you will need to key in the number generated by this app in order to gain access to your account on this site.

Two-Step Verification is switched off by default. If you wish to use it, you will need to switch it on and set it up yourself. You can do this by going to http://www.yellowandblack.com.au/community/account/two-step and then follow the instructions.

If you would like to view the other security measures that have been put in place, please visit this thread on the Xenforo website.
