Salesforce has always been committed to protecting the identities of users and your data.  Two-factor authentication is an additional layer of protection beyond your password.  Salesforce offers smart, simple, two-factor authentication solutions that enhances the security of your Salesforce deployment without sacrificing user experience.


Salesforce Authenticator is an intelligent, mobile, two-factor authentication app that delivers enterprise-class security, while providing simplicity and convenience to your end users. With Salesforce Authenticator, it’s even easier for employees to access business-critical apps through simple push notifications. With a single tap on their mobile device or watch, employees can approve logins and other actions, even verifying automatically from trusted locations.


Passwords are often the weakest link when securing users’ accounts, and it can be painful dealing with forgotten passwords and locked-out accounts. With Lightning Login, you can log in to your Salesforce account without having to type in a password. Just click your username and tap to approve the login with Salesforce Authenticator and the added security of your thumbprint. Lightning Login is fast, convenient, and minimizes the complexities and security risks associated with passwords.


As the world’s most trusted enterprise cloud, we know it’s important to keep your Salesforce account and data secure.  Salesforce provides the tools and transparency required to deploy two-factor authentication at scale, with detailed reporting, dashboards, and adoption campaign tools.
