Account Security

Enable Two-factor authentication

We provide an extra layer of security if you enable Two-factor authentication (TFA) on your Bitrise account.

  1. Download and install Google Authenticator on your phone.
  2. Log in to bitrise.io and go to your Profile.
  3. Click Account settings.
  4. Scroll down and click Security on the left.
  5. Click on Enable under Two-factor authentication.
  6. Open your Google Authenticator and scan the QR-code that appears on your screen.
  7. Enter the 6-digit code that was generated.
  8. Once you have activated your TFA and saved your recovery codes, you will receive a confirmation email from letsconnect@bitrise.io.

We recommend that you check your connected accounts (GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab and Xamarin) and enable TFAs if you haven’t already.

Generate personal access tokens manually

There are two types of personal access tokens in your Security tab of your profile:

Follow the steps to create a new token manually!

  1. In your Security tab, click on Generate new.
  2. Fill out the Token description field and select the appropriate expiration time (1 hour, 1 day, 1 month or never) for your token.
  3. Click Save & Continue.
  4. In the Personal Access token pop-up window, you can see your newly generated token. Save it somewhere safe now so that you can use it later.
  5. Click Done.

In your Security page, now you can see all your tokens with their expiration date and with the option to Edit or Remove them.
