Multi-factor Authentication is performed on the show level, meaning that if an administrator wishes to require viewers to use MFA to watch all shows on their network, these shows must be locked on a show-by-show basis. Please note that simply enabling MFA for your personal administrator account will not lock your shows so that only MFA-enabled users can watch.
Requiring MFA for a show
When a show is locked so that MFA is required for users attempting to watch it, viewers must pair their mobile devices or tablets with Screeners.com and enter a verification code after logging in via the typical magic link process. In this way, MFA acts as a second step of protection for your secured content.
MFA show settings are located in the show page of your administrative portal. Navigate in your administrative portal to the show you wish to require MFA for and select “edit show” [please note that this setting can also be enabled while creating new shows as well]. The MFA settings are located on the right-hand side of the page.
- If your administrative account already has MFA enabled, simply toggle this setting "on" to lock the show.
- If your administrative account does not have MFA enabled, you will see the “enable” button, which will prompt you to enable MFA for your account before you can require MFA for your shows. Please see Enabling MFA as an Administrator to walk you through this step.
- To disable MFA requirements and unlock a show, simply toggle this setting “off” again.
Please note that any administrators who do not have MFA enabled for their own accounts will not be able to view or download the analytics for shows which are locked by MFA. If an administrator does not have MFA enabled, they will not be able to do the following:
- See the episode numbers of MFA-locked shows in their Recent Activity.
- See the poster frames for MFA-locked shows in the show-specific analytics page.
- See the episode-specific analytics for MFA-locked shows.
- Download analytics for MFA-locked shows.
To see these analytics, administrators must enable MFA on their own accounts.
