Quickbooks Online Security Functionality

Hi there,

 

I would like to know what security functionality there is for Quickbooks online, and whether or not this can be controlled for all accounts within a business.  For example:

 

- Can a password policy be set (length, complexity, age, etc.)

- Can multifactor authentication be enforced and if so, what types are available

- Can the logs of what our users do within Quickbooks be exported to a third party log storage solution

- Any other security functionality that can be set for all users, perhaps via policies?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello Bluesat, Welcome to the Community 👋

 

Password complexity is set for all users by our system, it requires a combo of letters, numbers, and special characters and must be at least 8 characters long.

MFA is set on a user by user level can be switched off or on at accounts.intuit.com, but it defaults to on.

The audit log can be printed to paper or pdf, exports aren't possible directly.

Nothing can default across the board, but you have access to manage users and you can restrict certain users.

Hi Becky,

 

Thanks for the speedy response.  Could you please confirm what methods of MFA are available.

 

Thanks again.

Hello again Bluesat, the MFA is either a code emailed to the user's email address when an unknown login or password reset is requested or a 2 step verification you can turn on(and set the recovery number) in the accounts. intuit page we linked. It will mean if a password reset was requested or login on a different computer/browser to the one used for that user it would send a code to a designated recovery number either by text or phone call😊
