There are three available authentication modules available in Ubersmith: Active Directory, LDAP, and SAML. You can add new authentication modules or manage existing authentication modules.

Complete the Two-Factor Modules Section

Two-factor authentication adds another level of security to your Ubersmith account. It requires a second form of verification, in addition to a user name and password. Two-factor authentication is available for your users as well as your clients and contacts.

To use two-factor authentication to log in, you will need to first add the two-factor authentication module to Ubersmith and also install and configure an approved third-party, two-factor service on your mobile device. Ubersmith integrates with Authy and Duo for your approved Ubersmith users and any time-based, one-time password (TOTP) token-generator application for client and contact users, which they can enable in the Client Portal.

You can add a two-factor authentication module  or you can manage an existing two-factor authentication module.
