The following configuration options are available within the account settings Security section.
|The number of days a user session should be valid before forcing a re-authentication.
|The number of minutes between activities that should elapse before forcing a re-authentication.
|Ensure all users leverage passwords with a high level of complexity.
|Prevent the re-use of a previous password for each user.
|Lock the user's account if there are too many concurrent failed password/login attempts.
|The maximum age in days that a password can be before it must be changed. A value of
0 disables the max-age restriction and will allow a password to persist for the life of the account.
|Ensure all account users leverage two-factor authentication.
Two-factor authentication is a technique that helps to make your account more secure. It does this by adding a second step to your login process.
Single-factor authentication uses your email address and password to authenticate your Lytics session.
The second factor comes from the Authy app using an Authy SoftToken, a secret token that changes every 20 seconds. Entering a correct token provides an extra level of verification.
An Authy SoftToken is a secret token that is broadcast to the Authy app every 20 seconds. This unique token serves as a second factor by which Lytics can authenticate your session. Authy is available to download for free as a desktop and mobile app: Download Authy.
The only difference between two-factor authentication and single-factor authentication is an extra step during login. After providing your password, you will then be asked for your Authy SoftToken.
Using Two-Factor Authentication also requires every user to provide their phone number. Logging in with two-factor authentication for the first time will walk a user through this workflow.
