Get Started

This document will guide you through configuration of Two-factor Authentication (2FA) in Hosted Login - a quick, customizable, and standards-based way to add the Identity Cloud’s registration solution to your customer sites and apps.

This guide assumes you’ve already started working with Hosted Login. If not, please see the Hosted Login Getting Started Guide first.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA), also known as Multi-factor Authentication (MFA), provides an added layer of security to login and registration for your end users. After providing login credentials (like email address and password), users are required to supply another form of authentication before they can be logged in.

In Hosted Login, this second factor is a secret code sent to the user’s email inbox or mobile device . After the user receives the code, they must provide it back to Hosted Login for authentication.
