By default, users use their email and password to log in; however, to enhance the security of your organization, several additional login options are available.

2-Factor Authentication

2-Factor Authentication (2FA) requires you to retrieve a code via SMS or through an authenticator app to log in.

Enable 2FA on your account

  1. In Verkada Command, at the bottom left panel, select your organization's icon.

  2. Under your email address, click My Account.

  3. Next to 2-factor authentication, click Enable.

  4. Re-enter your account's password and follow the steps to complete the configuration.

Enforce 2FA on your organization

  1. In Verkada Command, go to All Products > Admin.

  2. Select Privacy & Security.

  3. Toggle on Enforce 2FA.


SAML allows you to log in using a third-party authenticating service, such as Okta, Azura AD, G Suite, or OneLogin. This method provides a single point of management for authentication across multiple applications, including Verkada Command.

Verkada Command is compatible with any SAML 2.0 provider. Learn more about the most popular providers.



If you have a large number of users in your organization, you may opt to use System for Cross-Domain Identity Management (SCIM) to automatically provision and manage your users. This is particularly advantageous if your company already uses Azure AD or Okta as your Identity Provider (IdP).

SCIM allows you to sync users and groups between Verkada Command and your IdP management software, where you can easily add, remove, or modify multiple users and groups simultaneously.

Verkada Command is compatible with many Azure AD and Okta SCIM providers. Learn more about detailed instructions for setup.
