Deadline to Enable MFA in Salesforce is February 1, 2022

What is MFA?

As a security requirement, Salesforce is requiring all customers to enable Multi-Factor Authentication by February 1, 2022. If MFA is not enabled by that time, your org will be out of compliance.


How Will MFA Impact you and Your Users?

  • Staff members sharing the same Salesforce user will have a challenge continuing to share the same license.
  • Change management will be needed to support users with the new process now that they will have to use the Salesforce app or key to authenticate every time they log in.

How Prolocity can help

Meeting with your team to review your user base for a recommendation on implementing MFA for your organization is the next best step. We want to ensure that your instance is enabled and set up to keep your data safe and in compliance with Salesforce.

How to Setup MFA

Salesforce has shared, "As cyberattacks grow more common, passwords no longer provide sufficient safeguards against unauthorized account access. Multi-factor authentication (or MFA) adds an extra layer of protection against threats like phishing attacks, increasing security for your business and your customers."
