A single password provides just one layer of security because users can save their credentials on their computer, write it down on a paper or be seen typing it. Hence, two-factor authentication is recommended to increase the security of your VigorACS 2 accounts.
This article demonstrates how to enable Two-factor authentication for VigorACS 2 users.

1. Login to your ACS server. Then open Account Centre (the top right section):
