More Security & Control for Office Chat Administrators

  • Office chat administrators now have a stronger security control for their office chat users with the two-step authentication feature. Accounts can become vulnerable to attack if you reuse passwords or have weak passwords. That’s why we strongly recommend turning on two-step authentication (2FA) for your office chat domain. You can configure user to receive secure tokens via Email or the Google Authenticator App.
  • Office Chat administrators can now enable online meeting services like GoToMeeting & Join.Me for teams in their network.
