Multi-factor authentication is a two-step process for verifying the identity of people who log in to the platform and enables you to secure your account. You can restrict the use of your account by other users by enabling one or both of the 2FA (two-factor authentication) methods. In this case, the users will only be able to access your account using the MFA method you enabled. The Super admin is the only role who can enable MFA on an account.
To secure your environment, that is to say to compel users to log into your account with the MFA, you can enable one of the two following options:
- The 2FA method by SMS: via a verification code sent in a text message.
- The 2FA method by Application (Google Authenticator, 1password, Authy, and so on): via a verification code sent in an application.
The MFA is an additional level of security during the login process. Your password still needs to be strong and to comply with safety rules.
When you enable one 2FA method, users will have to configure the corresponding 2FA in their profile to be able to connect to your account.
If they don’t have a 2FA method configured, they will be asked to do so when accessing your account. Otherwise, they won’t be able to log into your account.
You can also enable both methods (2FA by SMS and 2FA by Application). In this case, users will be able to access your account if they have configured at least one of the two methods.
For more information, refer to Configuring a 2FA on your account.
