Required Multi-Factor Authentication
There is also the possibility to set up a required MFA. After activation of this feature, all users of an organisation are required to set up MFA, before being able to continue in our platform. This provides an extra layer of security for logging in to Mopinion. It requests at least 2 ways to prove the right identity, for example, a password and a text message. The admin of an organization can set this up.
Please contact our Customer Success Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on enforcing MFA for all users of your organisation.
