Enable multi-factor authentication

How to enable MFA for a user.


Enabling MFA

MFA cannot be enabled at the organization level. Administrators must turn on MFA for users individually. This enables you to have a blend of authentication methods, which can be useful when you have users outside of your company (e.g. accountant or bookkeeper) accessing Modern Treasury.


MFA can only be enabled for organizations that are active in production.

To turn on Multi-Factor Authentication

  1. Navigate to "Settings > Users" from the dashboard sidebar
  2. Search for the user by name or email and open their profile
  3. From the 'Actions' dropdown menu, select 'Edit'
  4. Check the Require multi-factor authentication box
  5. Click 'Update User' to finish

After turning on MFA for a user, the next time the user logs in, they will enroll in a second factor. Then in subsequent logins, the user will be prompted to enter their 2FA at login.

Time-based one-time password: this will be a QR code that the user scans with their Google Authenticator, 1Password, or any variety of password or authenticator apps
