How Do I Enable Multifactor (2-Step) Authentication for a User Group?

2-Step Verification

Use this tab to enable multifactor authentication. Multifactor or 2-Step Verification is a simple way to add security to your system. Add another layer of protection to your OWS account by enabling 2-Step Verification in your User Group settings. Under Management > User Groups > 2-Step Verification, check the permissions you want to assign to the User Group and then click Save.

  • Enable 2-Step Verification: Using 2-step verification will help prevent unauthorized Users from accessing an account with just a stolen password. When users sign in using a new device, 2-step verification will require users to enter both their password and a unique code that they receive on their phones.
  • Force Disable 2-Step Verification Requirement:  In some cases, there may be users who are unable to use 2-Step Verification (users who don't have access to a phone, etc.). When this happens, they may need to be exempted from 2-Step Verification.
