Multi-factor authentication

Tags: Skills

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) allows Pluralsight to confirm your identity by using a combination of factors, rather than just your password alone.

With MFA, you’ll use an authenticator app on your smartphone to generate a code. Use this code every time you log in to Pluralsight in combination with your email address and password to guard your account.

Managing MFA for your team

MFA can only be turned on by individual users on your plan. There is no plan-level enforcement of MFA at this time.

Additionally, users on plans using SSO or LTI connections cannot use MFA.

If you’d like more information about using SSO or creating an LTI integration for your plan, please contact Professional Services (opens email form).
