Enabling Two-Step Verification for Guest Users

Article Number:04034

You can enable two-step verification to strengthen authentication for guest users.

Two-step verification is an authentication method that requires users to enter not only their e-mail address and password but also a unique verification code for every login. A verification code is valid only for a single login and cannot be used for subsequent logins. This prevents unauthorized logins in the cases when a password is leaked to others. Guest users receive their verification codes with the e-mail address specified for their login.
