How to force two-factor authentication on your iPaper account

Maximize account security by ensuring that all users on your iPaper account use two-factor authentication.

Updated over a week ago

⚠️ Forcing two-factor authentication on an account level can only be performed by account administrators.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an extra layer of security for your iPaper account designed to ensure that you're the only person who can access your account, even if someone knows your password.

2FA is applied on the user level in iPaper, meaning that this security measure applies only to the specific users that have it enabled on their accounts. Account administrators can ensure that every user is required to use two-factor authentication when logging in, by forcing 2FA on the account level.

📖 This article explains:

Prerequisites for forcing two-factor authentication in iPaper

In order to implement compulsory 2FA across your iPaper account, you will need to:

✅ have account administrator privileges

✅ have 2FA already enabled for your own user

If you haven't already set up 2FA for your own user login, now's the time to do. You can set this up by following our guide, below:

If you've already done so, and are ready to implement 2FA across your entire iPaper account, read on!

Forcing two-factor authentication in iPaper

  1. In your iPaper account, click on your Account name in the top right-hand corner to access your account settings.

  2. From the drop-down menu, select Account settings.

  3. From the vertical menu on the left, select Force 2FA. You will then have the option to implement 2FA across the entire iPaper account.

    When enabling compulsory 2FA, we'll email all users on the iPaper account that don't already have 2FA set up. This email will contain:

    1. Your email, so people can contact you if they have questions regarding 2FA.

    2. A link to the login page where they must log in to enable 2FA.

    3. Information on the deadline for setting up 2FA.

  4. You must enter a Grace period end date in order to enable compulsory 2FA. During this grace period, all users will be able to continue to log in without 2FA.

  5. Once you've selected an end date for the grace period, click Enable.

That's it!

⚠️ After the grace period expires, any users that have not yet enabled 2FA on their accounts will not be able to log in to the iPaper account. As an account administrator, you can extend the grace period for a specific user via the user list.
