Two-Step Authentication Overview

This topic refers to functionality that is not available to accounts on the Quickbase Essential plan. If the functionality described here does not match what you're seeing in Quickbase, your account is probably on this plan.

Two-step authentication is an additional security feature designed to prevent anyone from accessing your Quickbase account even if they know your password. With two-step authentication, a user signing in to Quickbase must provide two means of identification from separate categories of credentials: username/password combination and a security code provided via email. When this option is enabled, if the user enters a valid username and password, they are then prompted to enter their security code.

If your organization requires two-step authentication, your account or realm administrator will enable it. When you sign into Quickbase with your username and password, you are prompted for a verification code. The code is sent to your Quickbase email where you can then copy and paste that code into the prompt to access your account.

Security benefit

It's important that only you can access your Quickbase account. Two-step authentication provides an extra layer of security to protect your identify and your valuable data in Quickbase.

Two-step authentication eliminates the need for security questions. Your identity is verified exclusively using your password and 6-digit verification code.

Two-step authentication users

All Quickbase users, with the exception of users who are provisioned through Single Sign On (SSO) via SAML, may use two-step authentication. Those users, who are authenticated through SSO, inherit the multi-factor authentication method implemented at the customer's identity provider. The identity provider then provides the SAML authentication to Quickbase.
