We’re kicking off the new year with a way to make your account more secure.

Multi-Factor Authentication

You put a lot of effort into creating and managing your podcasts, so ensuring your content remains secure should be a high priority.

Whooshkaa gives you the ability to create user roles and assign granular permissions, but have you thought about securing user logins?

You can now add an extra layer of security by setting up multi-factor authentication (MFA) on Whooshkaa accounts.

You might already be familiar with the multi-factor authentication (also known as 2 Factor authentication) workflow – it’s when you first log in with a username and password and are then prompted to enter a unique, once-off code generated by an app or sent to you via SMS.

This code adds an extra layer of security that protects against a variety of vulnerabilities.

Whooshkaa now allows you to protect your logins using multi-factor authentication.

Whooshkaa multi-factor authentication is compatible with popular MFA apps including Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator and Authy (among others).

Setup is quick and easy, navigate to the “My Account” screen in the Whooshkaa Dashboard and follow the steps on the “Multi-Factor Authentication” tab.

In addition to individual users’ settings for MFA, tenancy admins can now enforce MFA-enabled logins for all users of their tenancy.

When this option is enabled, users who do not have MFA enabled on their account will be presented with information on how to configure MFA and will not be allowed to access the tenancy until they do so.

Setup Instructions

We’ve prepared step-by-step instructions here on the Whooshkaa Support Portal.

Other Updates

Until now, only users with a Tenancy Manager or Administrator roles could invite listeners to private shows.

We have made an update so that Show Administrators can now invite listeners to the shows they manage.

Until Next Month

We can’t wait to show you what else we have in store for 2021.

As always, we’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions, so if you have something to share please drop us a line.
