2 factor authentication with google authenticator



  • Yes please. We tried the email method, but this allows too much openness on the firewall. An authenticator app would be much better. We have a couple of months before we are forced into using this to keep a client happy. If it's not available for our USG60 we will have to go another route. Thanks

  • Dear all,

    are there any news according to 2FA with solutions like Microsoft Authentificator, Google Authentificator or Yubikey?

    There are a lot of security concerns when having the only option as 2FA per mail. I am managing and integrating a lot of firewalls, where such a solution is not acceptable - no outgoing communications are allowed to mail server or there are situation, where the firewall is completely offline.

    The worst case scenario is, when 2FA via email is activated and realized via online communication and the internet connection/WAN is down. There is no way to receive the code in such case.

    Most of other brands are supporting other types of 2FA, especially solutions like Google/MS Authentificators - working offline with hashes...

    Would it be possible to integrate these securtiy features?

    Thank you very much for your support and reply.

    The feature "2FA by Google authentication for administrator access" is confirmed to be implemented in the next firmware 4.60 and later versions.
    The firmware 4.60 will be released in early November 2020.
  • @Zyxel_Emily That's great news! Hopefully Googleauth-2FA for regular VPN users will follow soon...
