What’s New in Halaxy: June 2024

Last month we rolled out a number of updated security features that help you manage your data safely, securely, and responsibly, including adding multiple 2FA methods, new login alerts, and more. We also added new customisation options for how you manage patient relationships and admin notes.

Here are the top features and updates that we released in the last month:

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) updates 

2FA is one of the many ways Halaxy helps you manage your data safely, securely, and responsibly.

From 19 June you are required to enable at least one 2FA method before you can access your Halaxy account.

You can use SMS, email, or Google Authenticator as your primary 2FA verification method.

We strongly recommend that all users enable multiple 2FA methods. Having multiple methods enabled gives you a backup method to access your Halaxy account in case you lose access to a 2FA method. Say you’ve enabled SMS as your primary 2FA method and email as your secondary 2FA method. If you don’t have access to your phone so you can’t receive SMS messages, it means you can still use your second method (email), to access your Halaxy account.

You can also choose to trust a device for 30 days, meaning you won’t have to enter a 2FA verification code every time you log in to Halaxy.

Learn how to enable 2FA on your Halaxy account now.

New login alerts

You can now enable email notifications to alert users when their account is signed in from a new location or device.
