Given the constant barrage of cyber security incidents in the headlines, you’re likely not surprised to hear that cyber security is a top priority for ICE. We’ve made substantial investments in our operations and are committed to providing you with best-in-class protections including two-factor authentication at login.
While having a strong password offers protection for your account, that password may be stolen by malicious software, compromised networks, or simply being fooled over the phone or email.
Two-factor authentication (2FA) removes many of the risks associated with password management without piling on inconvenience. 2FA requires you to provide two separate identity confirmations at login: the standard username-and-password combo you are used to plus a unique 2FA passcode we send to your email or mobile device. Each 2FA passcode may only be used once.

When you enable 2FA in your ICE account, your login process will consist of two steps.
