Two-Factor Authentication & SSO For Your Community Platform

Product updates

Two Factor Authentication and Single Sign-on

We’re kicking off 2017 with two BIG, new features for CMNTY Platform. You will be glad to learn that our platforms now also come with Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to increase login security, as well as single sign-on to allow members more convenient access to the platform and other 3rd party sites.


Two-Factor Authentication

With two-factor authentication you can double down on platform security. When this feature is enabled members need to log in using their password following a security code sent to their email inbox or mobile phone.

You can determine which user roles must use two-factor authentication. For example, you can enable it only for Community Managers, or for regular members as well.

Single Sign-on

For those of you who have an existing member-base on another website or intranet, we are happy to inform you can now link those accounts with CMNTY Platform. With SAML 2.0 based Single Sign-on, your members will only need to log in once to get access to both sites, making their experience across platforms truly seamless. Who doesn’t think this will make member-life easier?!
