Get ready for enhanced online security
From July this year, the TPB will introduce enhanced security measures to further protect the information you provide to the TPB and to align with Australian Government standards.
When you first log into My Profile from July, we will ask you to create a new:
- TPB username, more secure than your publicly available registration number
- password, meeting the 10-character government standard.
We will also use two-factor authentication to provide an additional layer of security when establishing or confirming your account details with us. For example, if you forget your password, from July we will send a code to the email address or mobile phone number you have previously provided to us to confirm your identity.
These measures are likely to be familiar to you from your work environment or your personal online interactions. They will provide you with greater security and control when managing your interactions with the TPB.
Later this year we will undertake further enhancements to security measures and proof of identity in line with whole of government standards - details will follow in a future edition of eNews.
