What is two-factor authentication?
Two-factor authentication ensures school staff are the only people who can access their accounts using a code generated on their phone, even if someone else knows their Arbor password.
We use Google Authenticator as our two-factor authentication provider, which is free of charge.
As part of two-factor authentication, you can use IP whitelisting to allow staff to log into the MIS from the school's IP address without needing to complete the second step of the two-factor authentication.
Who can set up these features?
You'll need the School: Permissions: View and either the Staff: User Details: Administer or School: General Admin: Administer permissions.
We have different guides available, depending on whether you would like to set up Single sign-on (with two-factor authentication), or just two-factor authentication.
