Multi-Factor Authentication

Learn how to setup Multi Factor Authentication with Firebase Auth in your MakerKit application

Multi-Factor Authentication allows users to add an additional layer of protection when logging in to a website, which is ideal for services that tend to be more sensitive or where privacy is paramount.

At the time of writing, Firebase Auth supports only SMS MFA.

Enabling Multi-Factor Authentication

Enabling MFA in your Makerkit application requires two steps:

  1. You need to upgrade to Google Cloud Identity Platform from the Firebase Console, as it is needed to support MFA
  2. Flipping the variable auth.enableMultiFactorAuth to true in the configuration file, as it is disabled by default
auth: {
  // flip this to "true"
  enableMultiFactorAuth: true,
}

After enabling MFA, users can set it up from the Authentication page at /settings/authentication.
