The VMware Cloud service platform is a web-based application that supports any number of VMware cloud services. When you sign up for VMware Cloud services, you access your services and manage all your users, organizations, and payment methods through this one intuitive platform.

MULTI-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION (MFA)

MFA is a security enhancement that requires you to present two pieces of evidence upon signing in; something you know such as your password, and something you have such as an application that generates a one-time passcode. MFA helps protect access to your data by adding an extra layer of security. For more information about using MFA, see How Do I Secure My Account Using Multi-Factor Authentication.

To secure your cloud account with MFA, you download an authentication application to your mobile device. We currently support Google Authenticator for iOS and Android, and Authenticator for Windows. To download the MFA app that supports your device, see What Two-Factor Authentication Application Can I Use?

Go to My Account > Security to set up MFA.

MY ACCOUNT

Check out the My Account page. We bundled some old and familiar features such as your account information, and added a new Security tab for your password and MFA options, and an API Tokens tab in which you can generate and manage your API tokens. By the way, API tokens are not a new concept, we used to call them OAuth Refresh tokens.

Access the My Account page by clicking your user name and selecting My Account.
