Payroll platform: Mandating two-factor authentication (2FA)

Overview

When using a username and password to log into your account, you are only using single-factor authentication. This process is susceptible to security threats because it represents a single piece of information a malicious person requires. Two-Factor Authentication provides an additional verification level when logging into your account, ensuring that you are the only person who can access your information.

The Mandating Two-Factor Authentication feature allows you to make it compulsory for any manager and employee on your payroll platform to set up and use two-factor authentication when logging into their account. The payroll platform already makes it mandatory for any full access or reporting level users to have set up two-factor authentication on their account.
