Enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) in Atmos
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a security protocol that grants access to a digital application only after the user presents two forms of digital identification. Atmos utilizes an email-based 2FA method that is easily enabled on a per-user basis.
To begin, log into Atmos with administrative privileges and perform the following tasks:
- From the”Home Page”, open Atmos’ application menu on the left hand side and select “Settings”.
- From the “Settings” menu that drops down, select “Users”.
For our example we’ll add a new user by clicking the “Add New User” button.
Add your new user with the following steps:
- Fill in the user details (email, roles, etc.). Note, all new users must have a working email address to be given an Atmos account.
- At the bottom of the “Add New User” form, check the “Two Factor Authentication” box.
- Click “Save”.
When a new or existing user logs in, they will be prompted to provide a security code.
The user will promptly receive the code by email.
