How to enable multi-factor authentication?

You can secure your Astra account with multi-factor authentication (also known as two-factor authentication). It provides an extra layer of security to your account in case your password is stolen.

When we detect suspicious logins, we send a One-Time Password (OTP) via email to confirm the identity. However, if you would like to use different authentication methods such as the Authenticator App, SMS, Hardware keys etc - you can enable 2-Step Verification in your Google Account (2FA) and use that to login to your Astra account.

Enable 2-Step Verification in your Google Account
Login to the Astra Dashboard with your Google Account
Go to the My Account page, and click on the Security tab
Select Use Google account and un-check the other options. This will disable password based login in your Astra Account.

Once these changes are saved, you can sign in with your Google account only. All other sign in methods will be disabled. You will be required to complete the 2FA on your Google Account during sign in.
