    Information

    Activating Two Factor Authentication in RMS will require all users to connect their RMS User to their chosen authenticator application or enter an email verification code the next time they log in.

    This additional layer of security on login makes it difficult for any unauthorised individual to access RMS even if they obtain a user's login credentials.

    A recovery mobile number can be setup when activating Two Factor Authentication to receive any generated backup codes in the event a user is unable to access the device used for their verification codes.

    For maximum security, Two Factor Authentication cannot be disabled once activated.



    Activating Two Factor Authentication without reviewing the users that can access your RMS database enables unauthorised persons with existing user credentials to continue accessing RMS.



    Complete the following setup for optimal results when activating Two Factor Authentication in RMS:

    5. Save.
    6. Exit.
    7. Log out of RMS.

    For maximum security, Two Factor Authentication cannot be disabled once activated.
