SMS and email verification codes

With mobile devices becoming almost like an additional limb for most of us, it makes sense to utilize them as a tool to prove our identity. SMS and email verification codes are sent to the registered mobile number or email address of users, and they can provide this code to complete their authentication. This is generally used as a second factor of authentication for logging in, or for vital operations such as resetting forgotten passwords.

Configure SMS and email verification code settings with ADSelfService Plus

ADSelfService Plus is an integrated Active Directory self-service password management and single sign-on solution (SSO). It also provides multi-factor authentication (MFA) with 15 different authentication techniques including SMS and email verification codes. Admins can enforce MFA for:

  • Self-service password reset and account unlock
  • ADSelfService Plus login
  • Enterprise applications through single sign-on
  • Windows, macOS, and Linux login
  • Virtual private network (VPN) login

Let's see how it works as a second authentication factor for Windows login:

  1. A user attempts to log in to their Windows machine using the Active Directory password.

  2. After the password is verified, the user is redirected to the ADSelfService Plus portal, where they can select a second factor of authentication.

  3. Next, the user will be asked to select an email address or a mobile number from the drop-down menu available. The verification code will be sent to the selected email address or mobile number.
