QMetry’s Two-step Authentication is a simple best practice that adds an extra layer of protection on top of your user name and password. With two-step authentication enabled, when a user signs in QMetry, they will be prompted for their user name and password (the first factor - what they know), as well as for an authentication code from their two-step authentication device (the second factor - what they have). Taken together, these multiple factors provide increased security for your QMetry user account.
You can enable two-step authentication for individual users in QMetry. There is no additional cost for enabling users with two-step authentication.
Any users having QMetry authentication type can be enabled.
Users authenticated via LDAP/SAML cannot enable two-step authentication.
Two-step Authentication Workflow

While logging in they will be prompted for an authentication code after entering their QMetry credentials which are authenticated only after successful code verification.
Enable Two-step Authentication
Users need to have create/update permissions for user module to enable/disable two-step verification on their own/others accounts.
Enabling two-step authentication requires an authentication application downloaded on your smartphone. Applications for your smartphone can be installed from the application store that is specific to your phone type. The following table lists some applications for different smartphone types.
