- Posts from coworkers:
- Language you'd like to have posts translated into: This changes the language comments and posts written in another language are translated to.
- Languages you don't want to be offered translations for: This controls the languages you don't want to see translation options for. Any comment or post written in these languages won't contain translation options.

You can enable two-factor authentication to add a two-factor authentication system to your Workplace account for added security.
If you turn on two-factor authentication, also known as multi-factor authentication (MFA), you'll be asked for a special security code each time you try to log into your Workplace account or app from a new device. Once you've entered this security code, you’ll have the option to save the device to your account so that you won't have to go through the process when you log in from the same device again.
To turn on two-factor authentication:
- Log into Workplace.
- Click your profile picture at the bottom left of Workplace.
- Click Settings.
- Click Security and Login.
- Scroll down and click Edit in the Use two-factor authentication section then select Get Started. You may be asked to reenter your password.
- In the Text Message (SMS) section, click Add a New Phone Number to add a phone number. You'll be asked to enter a phone number, and then to confirm that you own the number by entering a confirmation code sent to you via SMS.
Keep in mind that once you've set up your two-factor authentication preferences, you'll need to click Enable to activate the feature.
Note: Security codes can also be generated with a third-party app, or a Code Generator in the Workplace app.
If you no longer have access to your two-factor authentication or can't log in, reach out to your Workplace admin or submit a request to regain access.
