Ubiquiti has today revealed that as of July 2024, it will start to be enforcing that Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is used on all Ubiquiti accounts going forward. Over the past few years, Ubiquiti has had a few security issues and regardless, using MFA whether that be via Time-based one-time password (TOTP), SMS or via email is better than not using it at all.
What do I need to do?
In a community post today, Ubiquiti explained what they are going to be doing and then also what to do if you haven't got MFA enabled on your account. If you don't currently use MFA on your Ubiquiti account, we would highly recommend you do so and this can be enabled via account.ui.com/security where you can setup MFA either by using the UI Verify app or the native MFA built into your favourite password manager, Authy or natively via Safari and iCloud Passwords.
Ubiquiti will be enabling MFA accross the board on 22nd July 2024, if you don't enable any form of MFA by that date, Ubiquiti will set up an email based authentication system.
