Important: Do not enable MFA for OS X if the system is already using or has configured another multifactor service or authentication plugin. Doing so could cause adverse results up to, and including being unable to access the system.
While rolling out multi-factor authentication with most solutions is a long and painful process, JumpCloud makes it trivial for you and your users to enable multi-factor authentication on any server, at any time. And, you can use multi-factor immediately, or you can roll it out later, at your convenience.
Enabling Multifactor Authentication on a Mac through the Administrator Console

Note: If you want to force users to use multi-factor authentication, you should also disable Public Key Authentication.
Enabling Multifactor Authentication on a Mac for a User
Navigate to console.jumpcloud.com
In the Multifactor authentication section in the user portal scan the QR Code or enter the TOTP key using the Google Authenticator app
Once Multifactor authentication is successfully setup, enter two consecutive Tokens in the available fields and then select Submit
