About this task
You can also enable the "Trusted Browsers" feature, to allow trusted browsers to bypass the two-factor authentication process for 30 days. When two-factor authentication is enabled, you can configure who needs to use two-factor authentication to access the Developer Portal
To enable two-factor authentication, complete the following steps:
- Click Configuration in the administrator dashboard.
- Under PEOPLE, click Two-factor Authentication.
- Select the Enable TFA check box. The view expands to show the configuration options for two-factor authentication.
- Under Login plugins, you can optionally select the Trusted Browsers check box. The view expands to show the configuration options for trusted browsers. This feature enables users to mark specific web browsers as trusted, which will cause the TFA token request from that browser to be skipped for 30 days.
- Click Save configuration. Two-factor authentication is now available for administrators.
