Airlock 2FA - Features and advantages

Easy Onboarding

Airlock 2FA is integrated into Airlock IAM and uses a cloud service for communicating with smartphones. This helps to keep installation and configuration costs to a minimum.

Easy Migration

A second factor needs more than just a new login page. Users have to be equipped with the app and register it individually and securely. The user can independently switch to the new second factor (self-migration) or activate it (self-enrollment).


Push notifications allow users to securely log in with one click in Airlock 2FA or release transactions such as payments.


It couldn’t be easier. This unique option enables secure login without any user interaction at all. Zero-touch uses information about your surroundings to authenticate you, making it easier to log in than ever before.

Transaction approval

Modern banking works like this: when you make a payment online, you must confirm it via a secure and independent channel. Complying with legal requirements such as PSD2 is easy and efficient with Airlock 2FA in combination with the Secure Access Hub.


With Airlock 2FA, you can implement a passwordless login to make security even easier to use. Insecure passwords are eliminated and replaced by a simple onetouch.

Offline QR-Code

Thanks to QR Code, secure login or transaction confirmation works smoothly even when the smartphone is not connected to the internet.

Social Login

The social login makes it easier for users to register in a protected area. Using the social login, website operators can authenticate or uniquely assign a user.
