Two-Factor Authentication Enforcement Now Available On All AppSignal Plans

We recently announced AppSignal Business Add-Ons, our alternative to pricy enterprise plans. The add-ons offered HIPAA BAA, Long-Term Log Storage, and Two-Factor Authentication Enforcement for an additional fee.

However, after listening to feedback from our customers, we decided that Two-Factor Authentication Enforcement is a core feature that should be available to all organizations on all plans for free.

Two-Factor Authentication Enforcement, Explained

AppSignal already offers Two-Factor Authentication as a security feature for users.

However, with Two-Factor Authentication Enforcement, you can ensure that all of your organization's team members keep their AppSignal accounts secure by having 2FA as a requirement.

You can enable Two-Factor Authentication Enforcement in your organization's Members settings screen:

Once activated, organization members, depending on whether they're new or existing, have a 3-7 day grace period to enable Two-Factor Authentication.

After activation, AppSignal handles the communication with your team members for you. We'll automatically email organization members to inform them of the change and display a banner at the top of AppSignal nudging them to enable 2FA:

If users fail to enable Two-Factor Authentication within this timeframe, they will be locked out of the organization until it's enabled:

It's as simple as that! In a matter of clicks, you can ensure your organization's members keep their AppSignal accounts safe and secure.
