Salesforce Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) + Single Sign-On (SSO) with Spekit
- As of Tuesday, February 1, 2022, Salesforce will require all customers to enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) to access Salesforce.
- If users are currently logged in to Spekit with Salesforce, they will not be affected until they log out, at which point they will be required to perform the MFA for Salesforce.
- If an employee manually logs out, they need to do the MFA for Salesforce again.
- Enabling SSO will provide a one-click login experience with Spekit without the extra codes from Salesforce.
- We encourage your organization to adopt Single Sign-On (SSO) to avoid additional login friction if your organization logs in with Salesforce to access Spekit.
Note: Regardless of whether you use SSO to log into Spekit, Salesforce will still require an MFA through the identity provider (IdP) or Salesforce mobile app.
If you have questions, please contact your Customer Success Manager to get the Single Sign On (SSO) process started with Spekit.
Spekit supports OKTA, One Login, Ping One, and Azure.
