Seeing as how Lansweeper is a repo for hordes of sensitive information... This seems like a good idea, Google 2FA plays well with many other LDAP/AD auth integrated tools/systems... Pray

Unfortunately, Lansweeper currently does not have a built-in Multi-Factor Authentication option. Multi-Factor Authentication has been requested before by our customers and is already on our customer wish list. We have tagged this topic as a feature request to add weight to this. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide you with an estimated release date for this feature at this moment.

Alternatively you could create a MFA environment by forcing MFA for Windows users and turning on Windows integrated authentication for Lansweeper. MFA for Windows will then in turn also be MFA for Lansweeper. You can find more information about how to enable integrated authentication in these knowledgebase articles:

This would really be a critical feature. At this point being in 2020 our organization is moving to require MFA on any systems like this that have management capability as well as access to sensitive information.

MFA for Windows would NOT be an option for our environment as 80% of our staff are prohibited from having phones or personal devices with them due to the sensitive nature of our business.

This shouldn't be considered a solution. This is more of a work-around. Because LanSweeper stores so much sensitive data and has substantial access, it should be part of any modern application's configuration to allow MFA. When will we see this being implemented?
