Note: The multi-factor authentication settings have a global effect. They cannot be configured differently for individual sites.

Multi-factor authentication
Enable multi-factor authenticationIndicates whether multi-factor authentication is allowed. Individual user accounts can be configured to require multi-factor authentication (for example during registration or manually by administrators).

Important: Only disable this setting if you have a custom implementation of multi-factor authentication.
