Extra security made easy with Salesforce two-factor authentication (2FA). Salesforce offers smart, simple two-factor authentication solutions that enhance the security of your Salesforce deployment without sacrificing user experience.

Fast, Frictionless Two-Factor Authentication

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, employees can approve logins and other actions, even verifying automatically from trusted locations.


Two-factor authentication is as fast and easy to deploy and administer as it is to use. Admins can set up Salesforce Authenticator for their org in just a few clicks by enabling a single permission set. Once deployed, users are automatically invited to walk through the onboarding process at their next login. 

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.
