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

2-Factor Authentication

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

Enable 2FA on your account:

  1. Select your organization's icon in the bottom left-hand corner of Command

  2. Select My Account under your email address

  3. Select Enable next to 2-factor authentication

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

Enforce 2FA on your organization:

  1. Select the All Products > Admin tab on the left

  2. Select Privacy & Security

  3. Toggle the Enforce 2FA option


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

Verkada command is compatible with any SAML 2.0 provider, detailed instructions for the most popular providers can be found here.



If you have a large number of users in your organization, it may be advantageous to make use of SCIM in order to automatically provision and manage your users, especially if your company already uses Azure AD or Okta as your identity provider.

SCIM allows you to sync users and groups between Verkada command and your identity management software, allowing you to easily add, remove, or modify multiple users and groups simultaneously.

Verkada Command is compatible with many Azure AD and Okta SCIM providers, detailed instructions for setup can be found here.
