Enable Two-Factor Authentication for Your Organization

Introduction

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) can be turned on for everyone signing into your organization. When it is enabled, the NetFoundry Console will require it for all of your users; it cannot be enabled or disabled on a per-user basis. 2FA is provided by Google Authenticator, which is free for IOS and Andriod mobile operating systems.

Signing-In With Two-Factor Authentication Enabled

With 2FA enabled, your users will sign into your organization with their username and password as usual, but will then be prompted to enter a 6-digit code before being allowed to continue. They must retrieve the code from their Google Authenticator app and enter at the prompt. Entering the correct code will allow them to continue onto the site.
