Two-factor authentication

The Two-factor authentication functionality provides higher security when logging in by requiring the user to authenticate using two-step verification/login. Every time the user logs in the additional code will be generated and sent to the user, what he/she should enter.

This functionality can be enabled at  Settings -> System settings -> Enterprise functions -> Two-factor authentication (2FA).

If this function is enabled:

  • it is possible to force users to perform 2-step verification at signing in (configured per user).
  • Users must use their smartphones (iOS,  Android or BlackBerry only) to generate a special code and enter it for signing in.

Please do not try to switch that On without complete understanding how it works.
