Two-factor authentication

With two-factor authentication, users are required to enter a verification code in addition to their basic credentials (username and password) when logging in to FA. If the user enters correct credentials and verification code, they are allowed to access the system with the role(s) and permissions defined for the user.

To access FA with two-factor authentication, the user needs an authenticator app installed on their mobile device. The app generates a time-based one-time password – a verification code to enter after entering the user credentials. There are various authenticator apps available in the mobile app stores (such as App Store or Google Play).
