Manage Security Settings

To manage two-factor authentication (2FA) settings for your account, select Security Settings on the user menu.

Two-Factor Authentication

Enable Two-Factor Authentication

If you’re signing in with your email and password, you can enable two-factor authentication (2FA) to protect your account. 2FA adds another layer of security to your account by requiring more than just a password to sign in.

  • Even if your organization doesn’t enforce 2FA for all users, we recommend that you enable it to enhance your account security.
  • If you’re signing in through single sign-on, 2FA doesn’t apply. This includes SAML SSO and OAuth.

To enable 2FA on your account:

  1. Navigate to
  2. Under Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), select Manage, and reauthenticate to your account.
  3. To add a new authenticator device, select Set Up.
  4. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the process. Use an authenticator of your choice, such as Authy or Google Authenticator.
  5. After selecting Continue, you will see your recovery code. Save the code. After you close the overlay, you won’t see the code again.

Now, each time you sign in to Cobalt, you must enter a one-time code from your authenticator app. If you have problems signing in with 2FA, see our troubleshooting tips.

Manage 2FA Devices

When you add a new 2FA device, it appears on the account security page. Here, you can see the authenticator app that generates one-time codes required for authentication to your Cobalt account.

Reset Two-Factor Authentication

We don’t recommend turning off 2FA on your account. However, you may need to reset your 2FA methods when:

  • Your authenticator device was lost or stolen.

You can remove your current 2FA device and add a new one for added security.

To remove a 2FA device:

  1. Navigate to
  2. Under Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), select Manage.
  3. Locate the desired device, and select the trash icon.

Now you can add a new 2FA device to protect your account.

If you lose access to your authenticator, ask your Organization Owner to turn off 2FA or use your recovery code. For details, see Lost Access to Your Authenticator.
