Adding 2-way authentication on Email Alerts Registration

HQi is now equipped with a 2-way authentication process for your email alerts subscription. This means after subscribers register to receive your emails, they will get a verification message in their inbox to make sure they are the real deal.

Soon as they verify themselves (i.e., within 48 hours), they will be directed to a page confirming they’ve successfully enlisted in your mailing list. Otherwise, their email address will be deactivated in your HQi subscriber list

Here are the steps to activate the 2-way authentication on email alerts registration.

  1. Update your SPF record. Click here for the tutorial on updating your SPF record. If the SPF Record is not updated, the email address will be used as the default From and Reply-to address.
  2. Before activating the 2-way authentication, it is important to change the From and Reply-to address on the Preferences page to your company's email address so the subscribers can identify that the registration email is for your website. To do this, go to HQI>Settings>Mail Settings and change the email address that is on the boxes.


3. Go to HQI> Settings and look for Email Alerts Two-way Authentication section. Click the tick box for Enable Email Alerts Two-way Authentication to activate this feature and click Update on top of the Preferences page.
