After enabling two-factor authentication, an additional security step is performed when users attempt to log into the application. The authentication process during login varies with the type of authentication mechanism chosen.

    two-factor authentication is enabled for your account.

Enabling two-factor authentication for clients

Enabling two-factor authentication for your client implies enabling two-factor automatically for existing or new users in that organization. You can also enable two-factor manually for individual users in the Users List page.

To enable two-factor for a client in your organization:
