Helping you keep your account secure

You've probably noticed that we are a little more insistently encouraging you to enable MFA on your Tryst.link account when you log in. This is because it is the #1 thing you can do to protect your account and make it significantly harder for someone else to attempt to take control over it from you. If you haven't done it yet, turn it on today! Remember to store your backup codes somewhere safe!

In addition to encouraging you to enable MFA, we've introduced email login confirmation. If you don't have an MFA authenticator configured, when you next sign in we will email you a code that you need to enter to complete the login. Never share this code with anyone or enter it on any site other than Tryst.link! We're rolling this out now and will prompt you next time you log in, if you want to avoid email codes you can enable MFA on your account and use that instead.

New this month

  • Email confirmation codes for logging into Tryst.link to enhance your accounts security.
  • Encourage enabling MFA during login.

Other changes

  • Improved a bunch of help text on forms and pages around the site.
  • Added fae/faer pronouns as options on your profile. Let us know if we don't have your pronouns available!
  • Remove posting to Switter due to the shutdown :(.
