User story

As a PRTG user, I want to enable Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) for use of PRTG mobile (iOS/Android) apps.

Details of user story

Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) has become more or less the standard for logging into security-critical appliances, which PRTG is. It would be great if we could have this implemented for the mobile version of the app. Note: MFA is now enabled for the web version, see here > https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/81138-implemented-two-factor-2fa-implementation

Acceptance criteria

  • It should be based on either of the many authenticator apps (Google, Microsoft, etc.)
  • I should be able to save my device for a certain period of time (e.g. one day) to avoid the permanent need of a new code
  • The current implementation of MFA ticks most of the boxes, the ability to use in the app version is all that is being asked here
