Multi-Factor Authentication

Users can add more security by enabling Multi-Factor Authentication. Once the MFA is enabled, the user should provide an MFA code and the password when logging in.

Configuring Multi-Factor Authentication

1) Once logged into Appranix, select the “MY PROFILE”

8) Once configured, select the “ACTIONS“ and select the option “MANAGE MFA” to manage Multi-Factor Authentication from where the user can remove or reset the MFA

Remove or Reset the Multi-Factor Authentication

Once the user selects the “Remove” option, it is no longer required to provide MFA credentials while logging into Appranix. If the user selects the "Reset", the existing MFA secret-key gets removed. The user will be redirected to “Create Multi-Factor Authentication”, by which a new MFA can be set again

Removing Multi-Factor Authentication from IAM Console

The user can reconfigure the MFA when changing the device configured or in case of a lost device. The user can request the Account Administrator to remove the Multi-Factor Authentication from the IAM Console of the Appranix. The IAM Administrator will have the permission to ‘Disable’ the MFA for a particular user. Once disabled, the user can configure and enable the MFA again (Ref. Step 1).
