Setup 2-factor authentication


2-step verification (also known as 2FA, MFA, and 2-factor authentication) is the most effective way to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts and keep the front door of your organization closed.

This is done by adding an extra layer of security to your cloud services which can prevent up to 99.9 percent of attacks on your Microsoft account

With Uniqkey's IAM, it will be easier for both the company and the employee to use 2FA. Uniqkey's app works not only as a password manager but also as both a multi- and two-factor authentication app. Uniqkey can automatically fill in the 2FA key when you approve your login with Uniqkey.

In the video below you can see how Uniqkey automatically logs you into a website easily and securely.


The video shows the following
1. The account to be logged in is selected
2. Login is confirmed on the phone and password is filled in automatically
3. The two-step approval is filled in automatically
