2-Step Verification Setup

The 2-step Verification process is set up to double check the user's identity. It is created for the purpose of security, so that no unauthorized person has access to your data.

The Administrators have the authority to allow users to setup a 2-step verification process. If the Enforcemnet is On, it is mandatory for the users to set up a 2-step verification, while logging into the system.

If the Enforcement is Off, it is not mandatory for the users to set up the 2-step verification process.

In the initial stages, while logging into the system, if the users have skipped the verification process and later if they want to set up the process, then they need to follow the below given steps:

  1. Go to Settings > My Profile and click on 2-Step Verification Setup.
