Account Security

My Account

Login to the Bridge, then click "My Account". Here, you can change your passphrase, or update some of your account settings.

At the top of the page you will notice a field called Public ID. This is how other Airship users refer to you (e.g. to invite you to collaborate for an Author profile). Your username is only used for authentication and cannot be changed here. However, you may change your display name at any time.

Account Recovery Settings

Unlike most web software, Airship allows you opt out of account recovery emails (this is mostly desirable for users equipped with password managers). However, many people want this convenience and are willing to sacrifice some security.

To enable account recovery, Airship requires two things:

  1. A valid email address.
  2. The "Allow Password Reset" box to be checked.

Optionally, if you use GnuPG, you may supply your GPG public key in the text box below. We will use this public key to encrypt the email containing your account recovery link.

Enabling Two-Factor Authentication

Login to the Bridge, then click the "Two-Factor Auth." link in the left menu under "My Account".

You should see a QR code and a brief form with two checkboxes.

Scan the QR code with your Two-Factor Authenticator device, then check the "Enable Two-Factor Authentication?" checkbox and press Save Preferences.

The other checkbox should only be used if you believe someone else obtained the contents of the QR code. If this happens, check that box then press Save Preferences. Your QR code will then change and anyone attempting to use the old code will not be granted access.
