Multi-factor authentication (MFA) requires a user to provide two or more verification factors to log in to an application. Passwords are the most common method of authenticating a sign-in to a computer or online service, but they’re also the most vulnerable to third-party attacks. Users often choose easy passwords and/or use the same passwords to sign in to various computers, applications, and services.
To protect against password vulnerabilities, MFA uses both a password and an additional verification one-time password (OTP) generated on a smartphone. You may have seen this on sites like Amazon, Facebook, or your bank. It’s common practice to increase security. Essentially we want to ensure that it is in fact you logging in to Meetingmax.
Meetingmax has implemented multi-factor authentication to increase security and ensure we are not vulnerable to attacks by third parties trying to gain access to the Meetingmax application. The second-factor method that Meetingmax uses is a one-time password (OTP).
Below are instructions on how to set up your OTP in Meetingmax:
Most password managers have an option to generate an OTP password instead of using the Google Authenticator application. In your password manager, under the login for Meetingmax, look for a space to add an Authenticator Key.
We recommend using the Google Authenticator application on your smartphone as it is the most secure option!
