User Management Fundamentals

Two-factor authentication (2FA), sometimes referred to as two-step verification or dual factor authentication, is a security process in which the user provides two different authentication factors to verify themselves to better protect both the user's credentials and the resources the user can access. Two-factor authentication provides a higher level of assurance than authentication methods that depend on single-factor authentication (SFA), in which the user provides only one factor - a password. Two-factor authentication methods rely on users providing a password as well as a second factor, like a security token or security code.

To enable 2FA in Kademi, You will need a 2FA app like Google Authenticator or Authenticator Plus. For help setting up an authenticator app on your device, Please refer to Google's Support Page.
