Two factor authentication

Two factor authentication

Protecting the accounts of users that log in to your websites is essential. We highly recommend you ‘opt in’ to use two factor authentication for Drupal 7 and 8 websites on the SaaS and PaaS platforms.

Two factor authentication is one of the most effective controls you have to prevent unauthorised access to accounts on your website. If your site allows members of the public to login two factor authentication is even more important. Two factor authentication is not mandatory, but we strongly recommend organisations start using this feature. Instructions on how to set up two factor authentication are available on the GovCMS Service Desk knowledge base or on the GovCMS online communities.
