Enabling Two-Factor Authentication for SimpleMDM

Last updated June 20, 2016

SimpleMDM supports 2 factor authentication, allowing you to enable an extra layer of security for your SimpleMDM administrator account. Enabling two-factor authentication is easy and we recommend doing so if you haven’t already.

Steps to Enable Two-Factor Authentication

  1. Once signed into SimpleMDM, click the user button in the top right of the screen. Select “User Settings”
  2. On the “Security” tab, look for the “Two-Factor Authentication” section. Click “Enable”
  3. Scan the presented barcode with an authenticator app, such as Google Authenticator.
  4. On the next screen, enter the authenticator code to verify the scan.
  5. Two-factor authentication is now enabled.

Hi Kelly- You’ll want to sign in to SimpleMDM using the key generator on your old phone. Once you have signed in, you can reset your key for the new phone. If you are not able to do this, contact support and we’ll be happy to get you squared away.
