1. Set up two-step verification   

Two-step verification protects your account by adding an extra layer of security to the login process. When this is on, a verification code sent through text, call, or email is required to log in. If you need to reset your password, two-step verification makes the process easier by allowing you to reset it directly in the app using a verification code.        

When two-step verification is on, it will be set to “Protect my Account,” where you are only occasionally asked to enter a code. But you can also update your settings to have two-step verification occur every time you log in to your Dayforce Wallet app.  

Turning on two-step verification is easy. Simply log into your Dayforce Wallet app, then navigate to Account > Security > Two-Step Verification. 

2. Use a strong password  

Protecting your account starts with the basics. A strong password is the first and most important step in keeping your account secure.  

When creating a password, use a mix of characters, numbers, and uppercase/lowercase letters and make sure it’s a minimum of 12 characters in length. If you’re having trouble creating your password, a password manager app can create strong and unique passwords for you.  

Change your password in the Dayforce Wallet app by navigating to Account > Security > Change Password.  

3. Keep your information up to date  

Regularly reviewing and updating your personal information can help with account recovery and ensure that important communications reach your inbox. Review your information under Account > Personal Information in your Dayforce Wallet app.  

Looking to update your address, email, or legal name? Reach out to customer support for help.   

4. Track your activity   

Monitoring your transactions can help you stay on top of suspicious activity. If you notice a transaction that you didn’t make, immediately change your password and contact customer support.  

View your activity by logging into the Dayforce Wallet app under “Activity.” 

As cybersecurity threats continue to evolve, taking preventive measures can help protect you against fraud and keep your information secure. With these top tips, you’re on your way to safe on-demand pay use.
