How to Remove Multi-Factor Authentication Devices from Barracuda Cloud Control

  • Last updated on

If multi-factor authentication (MFA) is enabled, and a user loses or breaks a device with the MFA secret associated with it, there are three ways to reset the secret associated with the MFA device:

    1. If the user has an additional MFA device set up, they can log in with the secondary device and remove the MFA secret associated with the lost MFA device.
    2. If the user does not have a secondary device, or if they cannot log in and remove the MFA secret, the account administrator can reset MFA for the user for use on a new device, however, this removes all MFA devices the user has set up.
    3. If the user has saved one-time use passwords, these can be used to log into the account. Each code can be used only once, and they must be using in the order printed.

A. Reset MFA from a Secondary Device (User)
