The UserWay security team encourages its users to enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in their settings in order to have maximum protection of their personal data. As soon as MFA is enabled for the user's account, it will be enforced upon login into widget management, management dashboard, and scanner tool.

Activating MFA will require users to pass two steps during their logging into the UserWay's products: login credentials authentication and verification by an additional factor: one-time code or time-based password.

Supported MFA types

UserWay supports two types of MFA authentication: Virtual Device and Email.

  1. Virtual Device MFA configuration requires installation of a mobile app which generates time based passwords. There are a variety of such applications but we recommend to Google Authenticator.

    1. App store link: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/google-authenticator/id388497605

    2. Google play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.authenticator2

  2. Email Based MFA configuration allows to a user to configure an email address to receive a one time password to a designated email address.
