How to enforce 2 factor authentication for admin users?

Teramind supports 2FA apps like Google Authenticator or Authy. You can enable/disable 2FA for admin users from the Settings > Security screen:

  1. Click the Gear icon image-206__1_.png near the top-right corner of the dashboard.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Select the Security tab from the Settings screen.
  4. Scroll down until you can see the Dashboard authentication section. Click the FORCE USERS TO LOG IN USING 2-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION button to enable/disable it.
  5. Click the SAVE button when done.

If you enforce 2FA in your deployment, next time administrators log in they will be forced to enable 2FA before being given access to their dashboard.

Note that, this setting will enforce 2FA for admins only. Admins cannot enable/disable 2FA on behalf of other employees. Employees have to login and enable 2FA using the QR code or secret key, along with an authenticator app. Check out the article, How to enable/disable 2-factor authentication for a user/employee? to learn how to enable/disable 2FA for regular users.
