Two-Factor Authentication

We understand the need for additional security, both for our customers and for their stewardship of their customers’ data. In addition to our industry-standard security measures, such as encrypted server communications, robust web session management, and automatic logouts, we also provide Two-factor authorization (2FA) for added login security.

Note: The 2FA program setting protects access by your employees to MySheerID and the program configuration, API keys and consumer Personally Identifiable Information (PII) it includes. This setting is not related to how consumers interact with your form(s) when being verified by SheerID.

Getting Started

In the Settings »» My Profile section of MySheerID, you should see that Two-Factor Authentication is set to Off. Contact SheerID Support to enable the flag for your organization.


Once your account administrator enables the 2FA flag for your company, all users in your organization must configure 2FA to sign in to MySheerID.


After 2FA is enabled for your account, you will be prompted to register with our 2FA provider, Duo, when you first attempt to log in to MySheerID:

  2. Choose from one of the available device options for the 2FA process. We strongly recommend choosing Mobile.

User Roles and Permissions

When a new company account is registered at MySheerID, the person who creates the account will have the administrator role. This user can then invite new users to the organization and assign the appropriate roles and permissions to each user depending on job function(s).

If you have a MySheerID account with an administrator role, click the Settings icon on the left-hand navigation menu, then the Users tab to manage user roles and permissions. If you do not have the admin role, you will not see the Users tab in this view. Contact an internal MySheerID admin if you require admin access.
