2-Factor Authentication

Policy Description

The 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) policy allows administrators to require that their users enable 2FA to login to their Password Boss account.

When this policy is enabled users will be prompted to enable 2FA when they login to Password Boss or when their accounts are synchronized.  There is a built in grace period of 3 prompts over 3 days to allow the users to have their mobile authenticator app setup and available.

If users have not enabled 2FA after 3 prompts, on the 4th prompt users will not be able to access Password Boss until they complete the 2FA setup.


  • The default value is OFF
  • When this policy is ON users will be prompted to setup 2FA the next time they login to Password Boss or sync their account.
  • When this policy is OFF users can enable or disable 2FA in the Password Boss app.

Disabling this policy does not disable 2FA for users. Disabling this policy gives the user the ability to turn of 2FA if they choose to do so.


We recommend implementing 2-Factor Authentication in your company.

Tip: encourage your users to enable 2FA right away and not to wait until the end of the prompts to avoid being forced to enable 2FA.


This policy is available to all accounts with a paid or trial business subscription.
