Cooling periods are a part of Iron Shield project, a series of protocols and enhancements all designed to protect QUOINE clients from potential threats - both external & internal to the safety of client's assets.
Cooling periods consist of the following blocks:
- Block email change within 1 week of 2FA disabling or password reset
- Block 2FA modification within 1 week of password or email change
- Block password reset within 1 week of email change or 2FA disabling
These 1-week periods prevent hackers from rapidly gaining security factors of user accounts and provide enough time for true account owners to react.
