Squarespace Two-Factor Authentication (2FA/MFA)

Squarespace 2 Factor Authentication is an additional layer of security in which a user is prompted to provide two factors to gain access to the Squarespace account. With Squarespace 2FA being enabled, anyone trying access your Squarespace account from an unrecognized computer/device must provide additional authorization. Authentication starts with a user submitting his traditional username and password. Once the user successfully gets authenticated with the 1st step verification, configured 2FA (OTP verification, Push Notifications, YubiKey, TOTP, Google Authenticator etc) method prompts for 2nd-step verification. After successfully authenticating with both of the steps a user is granted with the access to the Squarespace account. This extra layer prevents the unauthorized person from accessing the resources even if cyber attackers get to know your credentials.

miniOrange provides 15+ authentication methods and solutions for Squarespace. It allows users and organizations to set up certain authentication and settings which includes password restrictions, restricting sign-in methods, as well as other security settings. miniorange also makes way for authentication apps that support Time-Based One-Time Password (TOTP) Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy 2-Factor authentication app and miniorange Authenticator app.
