2FA -2 factor authentication

Currently,  if someone obtains a Boardpro password that person has full access/download information that this password/access allows.

Using two independent mechanisms to verify the identity of a user improves security dramatically.

E.g a password and text of a security code,  smart card or a password and fingerprint scan.

Text a Security Code  (after users log in with a password, a code is texted to their cellphone. Copying that security code from the phone into the login process provides the second authentication method.)

    We are keen to move to BoardPro, however we can't do so without having MFA enabled. We can't risk some of our most sensitive data being exposed via a simple phishing email or compromised 3rd party site that holds a user's password and email address.


    It would be great to get an eta on when it will be implemented. That is, MFA is a basic must for cloud services now, so it is just a matter of time until all services enforce MFA, let alone offer it.

    We are an IT service provider MSP, and one of our clients and in particular, their cyber insurance provider, is insisting that any access to devices and applications require MFA. I would suggest you implement this asap as they are likley to switch to another provider. If Boardpro supports SAML then we can use an MFA app. Thanks

    We would like 2 factor authentication set up. We believe this is the way of the future to protect our data. We have Watchguard activated for all of our devices and now Xero has also started this process.
