2 Factor Autentication for Okta Portal

I can see where to configure in OKTA to enforce 2 factor authentication against a particular application, however how can we configure  it to enforce 2 factor signing into the Okta Portal itself?

Hi Jerome,

Thanks for posting in the Okta Community!

You would need to configure Factor type and Multifactor policy, then create org-level Sign on policy and add rules. 

I've attached some articles regarding MFA configuration.
