Disabling two-factor authentication (2FA) for other users
Updated over a week ago

If another user can't receive their two-factor authentication codes (for example, if they forgot their cell phone or can't access their email), you can disable two-factor authentication for them.

This feature must be configured by the TELUS CHR Support account. Contact the TELUS Health support team through the support chat for more information.

When the user is able to access their codes again, they can re-enable two-factor authentication for themselves (see Customizing your personal two-factor authentication method), or you can enable it for them (see Enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) for another user).


1. From the main menu, click Settings > Account. The User Management window opens.

2. Under User List, beside the user click Edit.

3. Click the Security tab.

4. Under Two Factor Authentication, select None.

5. When prompted to confirm, select the checkbox and click Disable 2FA.

6. Click Submit.

7. When prompted, enter your CHR password and then click Submit.

8. Refresh your screen for the changes to take effect. The user can now log into the CHR without entering a one-time code.
