Admins can be forced to use 2-factor authentication by the owner of the SafeConsole account. This provides an extra layer of security on the account.


To force 2-factor authentication, it must first be turned on. To do this:

  1. Click Profile Settings from the user menu in the top right corner.
  2. Click the 2-Factor Authentication tab.
  3. Choose one or both methods.
  4. Follow the steps to enable your chosen method.


To force admins to use 2-factor authentication:

  1. Navigate to the Admins page by clicking Admins on the left side menu.
  2. Locate the Web Console Security section and check the Enable Two-factor Authentication Enforcement checkbox before clicking Save. Note: This setting can only be edited by the owner of the account.
  3. Admins will see a red banner at the top of their screen the next time they log in stating that their profile is not complete and they will automatically be directed to the 2-factor authentication page. They will be unable to view or perform and functions until 2-factor authentication has been set up.
