Brightspot CMS User Guide

Reset two-factor authentication


If a user configured for two-factor authentication loses the authentication device, there is an immediate security risk: the person who found (or purloined) the device may be able access the user’s Brightspot account. When a user reports a stolen device used for two-factor authentication, you need to reset the authentication protocol.


You can reset a user’s two-factor authentication if two-factor authentication is required for the user at the system, role, or user level.

Warning
Resetting two-factor authentication immediately locks that user’s account until the user can enter a new authentication password.

To reset a user’s two-factor authentication

  1. Click menu > Admin > Users & Roles.
  2. In the Users widget, select the user for whom you want to reset two-factor authentication.
  3. Click settings, and from the menu select Reset Two-Factor Authentication for This Tool User. The Reset Two-Factor Authentication widget appears.
  4. Click Reset.
