Two-Factor Authentication

What is two-factor authentication?

  • This is an added layer of security to our already secure HMIS system. 
  • It requires HMIS users to access an e-mail passcode or use an authenticator application on their work devise. 
  • The two-factor authentication can be set up to produce a code every single time an HMIS User signs into their account or it can be set up to accept a trusted device. 

What is a Trusted Device? 

  • A trusted device is your work computer or laptop that you use to access HMIS. 
  • A trusted device is connected to a secure internet connection.
  • A trust device has a password protected screen saver that only you know the password to.
  • A trusted device is not a shared work computer; it is not a public use computer; and, it is not a device connected to an unsecure internet connection.
