Any plans for two factor authentication in Confluence


I am assessing the cloud version of Confluence for use as a technical knowledge-base. So its going to be handling some pretty sensitive information. 

Are there any plans for enabling 2FA?

I don't know whether Cloud will have those features but if you don't mind getting on a Server instance, we have CAC/PIV solution. We are also looking to release our RSA SecurID solution soon.

Hi Timothy Thanks for your input but we are looking for a cloud based solution and I am interested in knowing whether the feature will be added to Confluence rather than looking to purchase a third party solution. Regards

@Timothy Chin may i know more about CAC/PIV solution? I'm using server instance and we need TFA too. Many thanks!

@Judy Chu,

Sure. This is the link to our docs ( You can also schedule some time there.

Vote/watch this open ticket with Atlassian:

It doesn't look like the feature has been selected for development yet, but watching issues lets you know when they are about to be developed/have been released.

There are couple of 2FA add-ons available. But if those plugins will be enabled for Confluence cloud is up to Atlassian.

For Confluence server, you can check out the benefits of our new 2FA Confluence add-on for two-factor authentication using your SecSign ID.
