Previously, 2FA was implemented at the account-level for the console. This caused owners or admins to inadvertently turn on 2FA for every user with access to their account.
With this change, users can add an extra layer of protection to secure themselves without enforcing 2FA on all other users on an account. You can view the new setting under User Settings in console. When enabled, this setting will take precedence at login.
Owners and admins can still add 2FA as a security requirement for an account through General Settings. When both settings are enabled, we will give precedence to the stronger of the two settings. Moreover, users will never have to do 2FA more than once per login session. For more information, read our 2FA help article.
