Enabling Password or Google-based Authentication

You can configure the authentication settings to provide your team members the flexibility to log in using their password or official Google account. Further, you can make their login more secure by enforcing two factor authentication (2FA). This provides an extra layer of security even if their password were to get compromised, by requiring an access token that is received on the user’s smartphone to establish their identity.

To set up password or Google-based authentication:

  1. Click the drop-down next to your username in the User Info Panel.

  2. Click Team.

  3. In the left navigation pane, click Authentication.

  4. In the Authentication Settings, select Require Password or Google Authentication.

    Require password or Google Authentication

Enforcing Two Factor Authentication

Once you have enabled the Require Password or Google Authentication option in Authentication Settings, you can enforce two factor authentication for your team as follows:

  1. Within the Require Password or Google Authentication option, enable the Enforce Two Factor Authentication option.

    Enforce 2FA

  2. Instruct your team members to set up 2FA using the steps detailed in section, Two Factor Authentication.
