Setting up two-step verification

You can enable two-step verification (two-factor authorization) to control access to applications through the Acquia Cloud interface. Two-step verification is more secure than password authentication alone. With two-step verification enabled, a user signing in to the Acquia Cloud interface must supply not just a user email address and password, but also a code sent to a trusted device, using either an authentication application, such as Google Authenticator or Authy, or an SMS text message.

This page describes how to set up two-step verification for all of an application’s users with the Acquia Cloud interface. For information about how to sign in with two-step verification, see Using two-step verification with your Acquia user account.
