What is Belnet Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?

Multi-Factor Authentication is an electronic authentication method where a user is only granted access to an application or website after successfully providing two or more authentication factors, significantly reducing your organisation's risk of falling victim to cybercrime.

Why Belnet Multi-Factor Authentication is important?

The main benefit of MFA is that it improves the security of your organisation by requiring your users to identify themselves with more than just a username and password.
By enforcing the use of an MFA factor such as a TOTP that your users have received on their smartphones, you can ensure better protection of user information and sensitive company data.

 How to activate Belnet Multi-Factor Authentication?

Connect your username to an “Authenticator” that supports TOTP like: Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator or SaasPass.

  1. Install the authenticator of your choice on your mobile device.
  2. Open your web browser and go to one of the Belnet services, such as Belnet Portal, and click on the LOGIN button.
  3. Select "Belnet Customers Personal Login with MFA" as identity provider on the webpage you've been redirected to.
