How to restrict users from logging in through username/ password?

Category: General allows users to restrict access to the account from multiple logins.

Why this feature?

  • When a user wants to restrict multiple logins to their accounts, they can customize their authentication mode to control the access. 
  • SSO (single sign-on) allows users to login directly to their accounts without wasting time at each login juncture, whereas Two Factor Authentication requires login credentials and a verification code to access the account. 
  • This will make your account secure and restrict unauthorized access.

To restrict users from logging in through username/ password, follow the below steps.

Step 1

Navigate to Settings → Security from the left navigation panel and switch to the User Access tab. 

Note: Only Super Users can access authentication settings.

On the User Access page, under the Authentication Mode section, disable the Username/Password Authentication toggle and enable SSO Authentication toggle if you want to activate SSO.

Step 2

Now when you try to login through your username and password credentials you will get an Alert Message saying that you will not be able to login, instead you will be asked to login via SSO.
