To comply with federal mandates, two-factor authentication (2FA) is now required to log into the Ag Data Commons.
2FA adds an extra layer of protection to keep your information secure. Each time you log into the Ag Data Commons with your username and password, you will be prompted to enter a code generated by the Google Authenticator app. If you do not have a smartphone, you can use a windows/palm os/java phone client.
If you have not already set up 2FA for your account, you will be prompted to do so the next time you log in to the Ag Data Commons. A short video walking you through the process is available on YouTube. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at NAL-ADC-Curator@usda.gov.
