Requiring two-factor authentication for an organization

You can require organization members and outside collaborators to enable two-factor authentication for their personal accounts in an organization, making it harder for malicious actors to access an organization's repositories and settings.

When using LDAP or built-in authentication, two-factor authentication is supported on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance. Organization administrators can require members to have two-factor authentication enabled.

SAMLあるいはCASを利用する場合、GitHub Enterprise Server上では2要素認証はサポートあるいは管理されませんが、外部の認証プロバイダではサポートされることがあります。 Organizationでの2要素認証の強制はできません。 組織で 2 要素認証を適用する方法については、「組織で 2 要素認証を要求する」を参照してください。

For more information, see "About two-factor authentication."

Requirements for enforcing two-factor authentication

Before you can require organization members and outside collaborators to use 2FA, you must enable two-factor authentication for your own personal account.


  • When your require two-factor authentication, members and outside collaborators (including bot accounts) who do not use 2FA will be removed from the organization and lose access to its repositories, including their forks of private repositories. If they enable 2FA for their personal account within three months of being removed from the organization, you can reinstate their access privileges and settings.
  • When 2FA is required, organization members or outside collaborators who disable 2FA will automatically be removed from the organization.
  • If you're the sole owner of an organization that requires two-factor authentication, you won't be able to disable 2FA for your personal account without disabling required two-factor authentication for the organization.

Before you require use of two-factor authentication, we recommend notifying organization members and outside collaborators and asking them to set up 2FA for their accounts. You can see if members and outside collaborators already use 2FA on an organization's People tab.

Helping removed members and outside collaborators rejoin your organization

If any members or outside collaborators are removed from the organization when you enable required use of two-factor authentication, they'll receive an email notifying them that they've been removed. They should then enable 2FA for their personal account, and contact an organization owner to request access to your organization.
