How to Configure Two Factor Authentication(2FA/MFA) for Evernote


Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) or Multi-factor Authentication is the process of the authentication in which you have to provide two factors to gain the access into a particular application. First Factor is the one that you know username and password and Second factor is what you might have as unique, like a phone (For OTP) or Fingerprint. This additional layer of security prevents the unauthorized person from accessing the resources even if they know your username and password. miniOrange provides 15+ authentication methods and solutions to secure your applications.


For web applications that do not provide support for federated single sign-on, we have miniOrange Secure Single Sign-On browser plugins for SSO. Here, it is enabled on an application, where end users see an icon on their home pages and browsers, through this users can set and update their credentials. ( In the secure store for that application only).


miniOrange Supports all Browser Extension
  • miniOrange Secure Single Sign-On Plugins for SSO support all popular web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.
  • Browser plugin a secure driven post to the application login page, signing in the user automatically on their behalf. - The plug-in does not store the credentials anywhere and they are discarded once the user has signed into the application.
  • Users credentials are stored in an encrypted format by using AES encryption with the combination of a customer-specific private key. When a user clicks the application icon, miniOrange securely posts the username/password to the app login page over SSL and the user is automatically logged in.

Connect with External Source of Users


miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.
