MFA factor configuration

Multifactor Authentication (MFA) is an added layer of security used to verify an end user's identity when they sign in to an application.

An Okta admin can configure MFA at the organization or application level. If both levels are enabled, end users are prompted to confirm their credentials with factors both when signing in to Okta and when accessing an application.

To learn more about admin role permissions and MFA, see Administrators.
