Security reporting: Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Overview

When using a username and password to log into your account, you are only using single-factor authentication. This process is susceptible to security threats because it represents a single piece of information a malicious person requires.

Employment Hero allows you to enable two-factor authentication for your account, requiring two verification steps before you can access your account. This additional step is an authentication code sent as a text message (SMS) or via an authentication app.

The Two Factor Authentication (2FA) Reporting feature allows you to create a report that you can use to analyse how many of your employees have enabled this added security measure and also reset an employees Two Factor Authentication if they can not access their original code generator. You can also use this feature to download a CSV file of the data, enabling you to load the report into a CSV supported program like Microsoft Excel.
