Set up multi-factor authentication

You can manage your multi-factor authentication sign-in settings.

If you have reset multi-factor authentication for an enterprise administrator they need to set it up again. See Reset multi-factor authentication.

Here’s what to do to set up MFA:

  1. At the sign-in screen, enter your user ID (email address) and password.

  2. In the next dialog:

    1. Enter the security code that has been sent to you in an email.

    2. Create a 6-digit PIN. This enables you to use email as an authentication method.

  3. In the next dialog, choose authentication type.

  4. In Verify Your Device scan the QR code and enter the security code. The code is either displayed in the Sophos Authenticator or Google Authenticator app or in an SMS text.

    Sophos Central Enterprise opens.

You can sign in with email authentication if you don't have access to Sophos Authenticator, Google Authenticator or SMS text. To do this enter the verification code sent to you by email and your 6-digit PIN.
