One account, one password with MFA on different phones

I have two independent users that use the same login and password.  One of the users has installed the MFA QR code.  I would like for the other user to have his own Authenticator.  Is this possible?

  • Hello Stephan,

    Thank you for contacting the Sophos Community.

    2 users shouldn't be using the same username and password for security reasons, however, yes it is somewhat possible, for example, if you use Google Authenticator, you can scan the QR Code with the second user's cellphone, and that would do it. However, the MFA time code would be the same at the same time for both users.
