Enforcing Two-factor Authentication

Article Summary

Two-factor authentication is a quick and easy way to further secure your Nexudus account. After successfully logging in with their email and password, admins are asked to confirm their identity by adding a unique code they receive on their phone.


You can enforce two-factor authentication for all admins in each of your locations using the Security option settings on the Admin Panel. Any admin who doesn't enable two-factor authentication in their account by the cut-off date won't be able to access your Admin Panel.

All you need to do is define a cut-off date by which all admins need two-factor authentication enabled.

  1. Log in to the Admin Panel if you aren't already.

  2. Click Settings > Security options.
  3. Enable the Enforce Two Factor Authentication toggle.
  4. Define the cut-off date to enable two-factor authentication under From date
  5. Click Save settings.

All done! Admins who don't have two-factor authentication enabled automatically see a banner at the top of the Admin Panel's home page. The banner pops up every time they log in until they enable two-factor authentication.


What if new admins join the team or current admins miss the cut-off date?

All you need to do is move the cut-off date by a day or two to let your admins enable two-factor authentication.

For example, if you have someone new joining on the 3rd of July, all you need to do is move the cut-off date to the 4th or 5th and let your new admin know they need to enable two-factor authentication within 24 to 48 hours.
