This feature is only available for the following data sources: SQLiteDevolutions Online DatabaseDevolutions Server , MariaDBSQL Server and MySQL.

 

The 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) provides unambiguous identification of users by means of the combination of two different components. These components may be something that the user knows or something that the user possess.

 

The use of two-factor authentication is used to prove one's identity is based on the premise that an unauthorized actor is unlikely to be able to supply both factors required for access. If in an authentication attempt at least one of the components is missing or supplied incorrectly, the user's identity is not established with sufficient certainty then access to the asset being protected by two-factor authentication will remain blocked.
