Users can only set up authenticators that are assigned to them in the MFA Enrollment policy. If any MFA Enrollment policy has a deny rule and the user is in the group and Network Zone that matches the deny rule, the user can't enroll or remove authenticators. See Multifactor Authentication.

Secure account changes

Before a user can manage their settings, they must verify their credentials using the Edit Profile button. The user verifies themselves using any two of the authenticators they're enrolled in.

After the user has verified their settings, they can manage their settings on the Settings page.

When a user begins making account changes, they must re-authenticate every five minutes, as configured by the admin. The count begins when they click Edit Profile.
