Enable MFA for Oracle Identity Cloud service User in OCI

Enabling MFA adds an extra layer of security to your OCI account by requiring you to provide a unique code in addition to your password when logging in. This helps to protect against un-authorized access to your resources and data.
In this post I am sharing how to enable MFA for the Oracle Cloud Identity Cloud Service User.


1) Login to Cloud Account and Select Service User Console.

2)  Select Oracle Cloud Identity Service Admin

3) It will redirect to below page

4) Go to Security -> MFA at left side panel, check the box

Make sure below are enabled and Save based on screen shot.

5) Go to Security -> Sign-On Policies, edit the Default Policy

6) Go to My Profile section and enable the Security for 2 factor Authentication. You can use oracle authenticator  or Third Party Authenticator from Play Store in OCI. I have used Google Authenticator . After Successful authentication it will show the details.

7) Now lets try to login and it successfully ask for the Mobile App Verification. Enter code from Google Authenticator App. 

I was able to login successfully.
