Periscope supports Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) via QR code. 2FA can be required for the entire organization, or turned on for a specific user. Recommended applications include Authy, Google Authenticator, or Windows Phone Authenticator.
Admins can set up 2FA by clicking the Settings icon and navigating to the Site Settings tab. From there, enable 2FA under Site Two-Factor Authentication.
Once an administrator of the Periscope account has enabled 2FA, existing logged in users' Periscope pages will automatically refresh. Users will then be prompted to complete 2FA setup immediately.
Users can enable 2FA for themselves even if their administrators have not required it for their site. To do so, head to the My Account tab and check Enable under My Two-Factor Authentication. The user will be prompted to complete 2FA for their next login.
To log in with 2FA, users will first be prompted to enter their email and password. After the regular login is complete, users will be prompted to enter their 2FA verification code which they can find in their selected verification app.
Once 2FA has been enabled for the Periscope site, resetting a user’s 2FA settings can be done by selecting the Settings icon, navigating to the Permissions Tab, and clicking the gear next to the desired user. From there, select Reset 2FA from the menu. At the next login, the user will be prompted to set up 2FA.
