    Note

    The Security Image and Forgotten Password Question authenticators settings features are not available in the End-User Dashboard.

    End users can only set up authenticators that are assigned to them in the MFA Enrollment policy. Authenticators that are disabled in the MFA Enrollment policy won't appear to end users on the Settings page. If any MFA Enrollment policy has a deny rule and the end user is in the group and Network Zone that matches the deny rule, the end user can't enroll or remove authenticators. See Multifactor Authentication.

    Secure account changes

    Before an end user can manage their settings, they must verify their credentials using the Edit Profile button. The end user verifies their password and a second security method, if one is enrolled. See Compare Identity Engine and Classic Engine.

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

    When an end 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.
