To comply with the modern security standards, all PX user accounts must be protected with two-factor authentication mechanism. This means that both internal users and clients need to connect their mobile phone number to PX account and authorize on login with the code from an SMS.
This article describes easy steps you need to take to make your account more secure.

When you try to change your password or security phone number, you'll need to go through two-factor authentication process again - so that we're sure your account is safe.
How to change your phone number for two-factor authentication
- If you still have an access to your previous phone number used for two-factor authentication, log in to your PX account and change for phone number according to the instructions above.
- If you've lost the phone that you use for 2-factor authentication – try calling your phone network to transfer your old number over to a new phone. You'll need a new SIM card for that, and it could take a day or two to activate.
- If you've lost the phone number and can't get it back, we have a manual verification process to help regain access to your PX account. To get started, please contact our Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll need to answer several questions related to your account. The verification procedure may take up to 48 hours.
