How to enable 2FA for Workspace?

Syntropy Stack supports 2FA for workspaces, therefore, we give admins the ability to require 2FA for all workspace users, to ensure the highest level of security. When enabled, all workspace users and invitees are required to enable 2FA for their accounts in order to join the workspace. This means that it is necessary to have 2FA enabled on the user's account, they will use their own verification codes.

Setting up 2FA

Why should I enable 2FA?

As passwords have become increasingly less secure, whether, through data breaches or poor user practices, more and more individuals are moving to 2FA to secure their digital assets.
