Configure Multi-Factor Authentication

As an administrator, mandate Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for your projects and enforce all project users to set up MFA for two-step, enhanced security and protection.

Notify your project users before enabling MFA on your project. When enabled, project users will see a blue lock icon and are excluded from using 4Explorer and 4Outlook plugin tools - they must use VFP Desktop.

Important: When you enable MFA, all users are required to complete their multi-factor authentication setup at their next log in. Ensure all project users and supply chain are aware of this before you enact the change.
  1. Log in to Viewpoint for Projects™.
  2. Select the project you would like to enforce multi-factor authentication.
  3. Select Configure > This Container.
  4. To enable or disable MFA, select the plus icon next to Security Settings, and select or clear Enable Multi-Factor Authentication.
    Tip: You may download an Excel sheet of all users without multi-factor authentication enabled by selecting Report of users without MFA on the configure screen.
  5. Select Finish.
The project will now require all users to enable MFA in order for them to gain access. To enable MFA see Enable Multi-Factor Authentication for more details.
