Introducing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Elevating Dental Practice Security

Hello Archy Community!

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on Archy! In our ongoing commitment to safeguarding your practice and patient data, we are elevating our security features.

Understanding Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

MFA, or Multi-Factor Authentication, is a security protocol that requires users to verify their identity using multiple methods before they can access their accounts. Instead of just entering a password, users might also need to input a code sent to their phone, provide a fingerprint, or use another form of verification. By requiring at least two different types of identification, MFA ensures that even if one form of authentication is compromised (like a password), unauthorized individuals will still have a hard time accessing your information. In essence, it’s like having two locks on your door instead of one.

Why MFA Matters

In this digital era, the surge in cyber threats and data breaches makes it indispensable to employ strong security measures. With MFA, even if someone discovers your password, they won’t breach your Archy account without clearing the secondary verification.

Our Commitment to Your Security

Protecting your practice and patient data is not just a goal for us—it’s our top priority. Implementing MFA is a significant step, but it’s just one of many measures we are taking to ensure that Archy remains a trusted and secure platform for dental practices.

Enabling MFA on Archy

We have made the MFA setup process seamless. To activate MFA for your account:

1. You can log into your Archy account as an admin user.

2. Navigate to ‘Settings’.

3. Click on ‘Security’, Multi-Factor Authentication, and click on the toggle to turn on MFA.

You can visit our Help Center for additional information.

A Universal Security Measure

While launching MFA on Archy is a milestone we’re proud of, we can’t stress enough the value of implementing MFA on every platform you use. Be it emails, banking apps, or other essential tools, MFA stands as a fortress for your data. Ensuring the security of your practice and personal information is paramount—it’s always wiser to err on the side of caution.

In conclusion, the world of cybersecurity is ever-evolving, and so are we. We are dedicated to providing you with the tools you need to protect your practice and patient data. By introducing MFA on Archy, we’re taking one more step towards a more secure digital future for the dental community.

Here’s to a safer online experience!
