Enhance account security

Use native functionality to decrease the likelihood of successful cyber attack

Sign on securely with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Introduction

Sensor Tower customers can enable Multi-Factor Authentication at the user or organizational level to greatly reduce the risk of cyber attacks. Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires a user to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to an application or online account. With MFA enabled, users will have to provide at least one additional verification factor in addition to their username and password.

One of the most common MFA factors that users encounter are one-time passwords (OTPs). OTPs are 4-8 digit codes that are generated periodically or each time an authentication request is submitted, and are sent to the user via email, SMS, or a mobile app. At this time, Sensor Tower only supports mobile apps with 6 digit OTPs.

The Sensor Tower platform also natively supports Okta Single Sign-On and Google Sign-In.

Why this matters

Sensor Tower’s top priority is protecting customer and company data. By enabling MFA, customers can enforce hygienic security practices by requiring users to identify themselves beyond their username and password, which can be easy for third parties to access. MFA provides our customers with the confidence that their organizations will stay safe from cybersecurity risks.
