What is MFA?

wasabiMFA allows you to provide multiple methods for authentication, which dramatically improves the security of your Wasabi account. This article describes how to apply this to your user accounts.


Mobile phone app

To complete the MFA paradigm of something you know (password) and something you have (mobile phone), you can install a Google Authenticator app on your mobile phone. Various apps are available for Android and iPhone, I found the free TOTP Authenticator app works well for me on an iPhone.

 

Wasabi Console

Start by logging on to the Wasabi Console with your Root account.

  1. Click user > Settings.
  2. Expand the MFA Settings section.
  3. Use your mobile app to scan the QR code.
  4. Enter two consecutive authentication codes from your app.
  5. Click Activate Virtual MFA.

Repeat the above process for subuser accounts. Note that your root account should only be used for billing and emergency purposes.
