How to enable two-factor authentication in the UKCloud Portal
To provide additional security, you may want to enable two-factor authentication (2FA) in the UKCloud Portal. 2FA requires that users enter a randomly generated code, as well as their user name and password, when logging in to the Portal.
To set up 2FA, a Portal administrator must first enable 2FA for the Portal customer account. After enabling 2FA for the account, the next time a user attempts to log in, they will be prompted to set up 2FA for their user account by registering their account with an authenticator app, such as Google Authenticator.
To enable 2FA, you must be a Portal administrator.
Enabling 2FA in the UKCloud Portal
To enable 2FA:
Log in to the UKCloud Portal as an administrator.
If necessary, switch to the account for which you want to enable 2FA.
In the navigation panel, select Settings.
On the Settings page, select the Security Settings tab.
Click Google Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to expand the section.
Select the Enable Google Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) check box.
When you're done, click Save.
The next time a user logs in to the Portal to access the account, they will be prompted to set up 2FA for their user account. For more information, see How to set up two-factor authentication for a user account.
