Profile Settings

In this section, we will help you through some of the important settings offered in the researcher dashboard, particularly Two-Factor Authentication and Change Password features.
By tapping on the Profile at the bottom of the dashboard panel, you will have access to three features, including Personal Information, Security, and Log out.

Personal Information

Since your email has already been verified, the next step is to add your phone number. This step is mandatory if you want to enable the Two Factor Authentication feature. To do this, click on the + button, and enter the phone number after selecting your country.
Add Your Phone Number
This will be followed by receiving a Verification Code as a text message.
Verification Code
As soon as you get the code, enter it in the specified field.
Enter the Verification Code
When you are done, you will see a message in the bottom-left corner of the page, indicating that your phone number has been validated. You can also see a green-colored message under the Phone Number section to inform you that the phone number is verified.

The second setting at your disposal in Profile is Security. Selecting that will offer you two further features, namely Two-Factor Authentication and Change Password.
Security Features

Two-Factor Authentication

By enabling the Two-Factor Authentication feature, Ethica provides you with an extra layer of security to ensure that you are the only person who can have access to the researcher dashboard . Enabling this feature allows Ethica to confirm your identity through a text message every time you log into your account.
Keep in mind that in order to utilize this authentication process, you must have already added and validated your phone number as we explained earlier. With that being done, all you need to do is to turn the Two-Factor Authentication toggle on, and immediately after that, a message appears at the bottom of the page that notifies you of your profile update.
Enabling the Two-Factor Authentication Feature
From now on, every time that you attempt to log in, a security code will be sent to your phone, which you need to enter in the specified field shown below to be able to access your researcher dashboard.

Password Change

The Password Change feature included in the Security settings allows you to change the password as you see fit. After tapping on Password Change, a page will be displayed where you can create a new password. Note that adding a new password will be possible only after the confirmation of the current one.
In case you are having difficulty remembering your password, click on Forgot Password.
Changing Your Password
This will show you a dialog, as you can see below, which indicates that you will be logged out and redirected to another page where you have the option to change the password.
The Forgot Password Dialog
By pressing the Go button, you will be navigated to another page to reset the password. Once you are on that page, enter the email address that you have initially used to create the researcher account, and click on Reset Password.
Reset Your Password
Afterward, Ethica will send you an email with instructions on how to set a new password.
Instructions to Reset Your Password
Open your email account and tap on the link sent by Ethica.
The Email Instructions to Reset the Password
When the selection and confirmation of the new password are done, press Change My Password, and you will be taken back to your researcher dashboard.
