2-Factor Authentication

Description

 

This feature is only available for the following data sources: SQLite, Online Database, Devolution Server, MariaDB, Microsoft Access, SQL Azure, SQL Server and MySQL.

 

Two-factor authentication identifies users by two different components: something that the user knows (often a password) and something that the user possesses (e.g. a validation code sent to a mobile device)

 

If one of the components is missing or supplied incorrectly, the user's identity is not established with sufficient certainty and then access to the data source will remain blocked.

 

Remote Desktop Manager supports Google Authenticator, Yubikey, Duo and AuthAnvil.
