Setting up two-step verification

You can enable two-step verification (two-factor authentication) to control access to applications through the Cloud Platform interface. Two-step verification is more secure than password authentication alone. If you enable two-step verification, a user signing in to the Cloud Platform interface must supply not only 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 Cloud Platform interface. For information about how to sign in with two-step verification, see Using two-factor authentication with your Acquia user account.
