Dashboard Authentication Policy

The following policy governs requests for special authentication mechanisms for the Auth0 dashboard.

Auth0 as the SAML Service Provider

Multi-factor Authentication

You can enable multi-factor authentication for logging in to the dashboard with your account.

This policy is effective April 4, 2016

This policy may be revised when we are able to make configuration and troubleshooting visibility available on a self-service basis for other forms of authentication.

Any accounts with special dashboard authentication implemented before the effective date of this policy shall be grandfathered and allowed to continue.
