Multi-Factor Authentication, or MFA for short, is a method of granting account access using more than one authentication method. For instance, instead of merely keying a password to log into an account, MFA might require a verification code sent through SMS or a third-party app to be entered as well.
Based on your company's security policies, MFA can be activated for your users so that each time they log in they are required to enter their MFA token in addition to using the password.
Setting up Multi-Factor Authentication
- Log into your Cordial account and navigate to Account & Password using the top right navigation menu.
- Under Multi factor authentication, click the Enable button.
- Next, open your MFA app. If you do not already have one, download the Google Authenticator App from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Use the Google Authenticator app to scan the QR code or enter the written code into the Enter code from device field.
- Moving forward, whenever you log into your Cordial account, you will be prompted to enter your password along with the authentication code provided in your MFA app.
Multi-Factor Authentication Status
You can view the MFA status of all of your users by navigating to Users from the top right navigation menu.
Reset Multi-Factor Authentication
To reset MFA for a user, please submit a ticket. Be sure to specify which username (i.e., email address) needs its MFA reset.
