On 11/15/2017 we will begin requiring all user accounts to enable multi-factor authentication (MFA). This is a method of confirming a user’s claimed identity by using a combination of two different components. The first time you log in on after this day, you will receive a 6-digit code via a method of your choosing (text, authenticator app, or email) that you will then be required to enter before you can finish logging in to your account.
For your convenience, you do not have to verify every single time you log in. You will only be prompted to re-authenticate every once in a while, to continue maintaining your device security, or whenever you log in on a new device.
The next time you log in after 11/15/2017, before you are able to access our site, you will first be prompted to choose your authentication method:
You have three options for your second authentication method: text message, authenticator app, or email.
If you choose text message, you will be asked to enter your phone number into the available field for where you would like to receive texts. A code will then be texted to the phone number you provided, and you will type that code in before you can finish logging in to your account.
If you have a smartphone, you may choose to use an authenticator app. If you choose to use an authenticator app, you will receive a QR code to scan and set up your app. A code will be displayed on the app after set up, and you will type that code in before you can finish logging in to your account.
Email is less secure than text or app, so if you choose this option, you will be prompted to certify that you do not have a device that can use the other methods and acknowledge that it is less secure. A code will then be sent to the email you provided, and you will type that code in before you can finish logging in to your account.
Introducing InstaScreen, AAA Credit Screening’s new platform for running and viewing consumer reports. As of 6/13/2016, all of our reports will be run through InstaScreen. What does this mean for you, our clients?
Some of you may have already experienced InstaScreen. If you have requested a report within the past week, you should have received a welcome e-mail directing you to https://aaacredit.instascreen.net/ where you can use the login and password that we have e-mailed you to access your report – now, later, whenever you want; your report will be waiting for you within our neat and tidy interface.
If you haven’t requested a report in the past week – don’t fret! Your account is ready and waiting for you when you put in your next request whether it’s a week, month, or year from now; we will send you your login information along with the notification that your request has been completed.
Once you enter in your login for the first time, you will be prompted to reset your password to something other than the default. Be sure to practice password safety and do not use a password that you utilize for other logins, such as your e-mail or your online banking account. You will also be prompted to set up security questions. These questions are in place so that in the event you forget your password, you can prove your identity to regain access to your account.
How do you access your reports once you are logged in to InstaScreen? There are two easy ways.
- The first way is to enter in your applicant’s last name into the search bar at the top of the page and press your “enter” key. Then, a list of any of your applicants with that last name will appear. Click on the applicant whose report you want to view, and voilà!
- The second way is to click on the tab labeled “Reports”. Then, on the left sidebar, click on the link for “Last 10 Reports”. This will come up with the last 10 reports that you have ordered from us. Click on the applicant’s name whose report you want to view, and the report will appear!
One of the benefits of InstaScreen is access. You can now access your reports via your home computer, your smartphone, or a tablet with internet access! You can download your report as a PDF so you can view or print it offline or you can view it online. InstaScreen is perfect for anyone at home or on the go!
