For greater security, we offer a two factor authentication feature for administrators in your Device Magic organization.
There are two ways to enable two factor authentication.
The first method will enable two factor authentication for a single administrator and show the steps involved in completing the authentication.
The second method will force two factor authentication for all administrators.
First, click the link in the top right corner of your dashboard that will be represented by your email address and then select 'Personal Settings'.
Next, select the 'Two Factor Auth' tab.
You'll then be brought to your Setup page.
Switch the 'Use two factor auth' toggle to 'On'.
Next, choose a type of Authentication Method:
1. Google Authenticator (recommended)
1. Download and setup the Google Authenticator app on your device.

4. Click 'Save settings'.

Click 'Send OTP to number' button.

Note: SMS message attempts are limited to 5 per day per user for security reasons. If you reach this limit, and are still having difficulty accessing your account, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
Force two factor authentication for all administrators by clicking the gear icon on the top right corner of your Management Console and then select 'Organization Settings'.
You will then land on your Organization Settings page and find the 'Force Two Factor Auth' section. Simply switch the toggle to 'ON'.
This will force all users accessing your organization to use two factor authentication. After enabling this, the next time any of your users logs into your organization, they'll need to complete the previous steps for two factor authentication.
