Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is a two-step verification feature that Fliplet provides for version 2 of Fliplet studio. It adds an extra layer of security when logging into Fliplet Studio and Fliplet Viewer. 2FA is also known as “multi-factor authentication” that requires not only a username and password but also an additional security authentication measure. This additional security measure will rely on something that only the user has access to, e.g.
- A specific mobile device
- A specific mobile number
- A specific email account
To configure, follow the steps provided below:
- Login to Fliplet Studio.
- Go to Your account > Security.
- Select your preferred method of authentication.
- Follow the instructions to set up 2FA.
You have a choice of methods to implement your second step of security authentication:
- Using authenticator apps
- Using SMS
- Using email
You need to be using the latest version of Fliplet Viewer to use 2FA. If you are using an old version of Fliplet Viewer you will be greeted by a message such as the one below.
“Please enter the one-time code generated on your authenticator app.”
Note: To avoid having to constantly use 2FA every time you access Fliplet Studio, you can use the Keep me logged in checkbox when logging into Fliplet Studio so that you can remain logged in for 30 days.
Organization Admin options
An organization admin can choose to enforce 2FA across all user accounts within the organization. This can be accessed in the security tab under organization security. To learn more about the organization secuirty see here.
Organization admin’s also have access to disable 2FA on a user’s account. Access the organization dashboard, manage users, and the option to disable 2FA is available for any user with 2FA currently enabled.
