Safety Management Online (SMO) has implemented a new two-factor authentication (2FA) process for all users across the platform. Two-factor authentication is now very common, as it is an effective way to increase site security for all data.
When you next log into SMO, you will be asked to set up 2FA. A guide that goes through this process is available here. Please be aware you will need a smartphone to complete the process.
You will need to set up 2FA to have continued access to SMO.
While we understand this process may be frustrating, in light of highly publicised data breaches at other organisations, it is increasingly important to address the safety and security of people’s personal information.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact someone from Professional Standards.
