Trusted Browsers | MFA - Zoho Accounts

Trusted Browsers

Note: Based on your organization policy, trusted browsers may not be available for your Zoho account. Contact your admin to find out whether such a policy is applied.

What are trusted browsers?

Trusted browsers enable you to sign in to your Zoho account without having to verify yourself using multi-factor authentication (MFA) every time you sign in. Trusting a browser helps you save time if you have to sign in to your Zoho account often. However, make sure you trust a browser only on computers you own and use. Never trust browsers on a computer that is public and/or shared by many users.

How to trust a browser?

When you sign in to Zoho in a browser, you will be asked if you want to trust it. If you click TRUST, you won't be asked to verify yourself using MFA when you sign in using that browser as long as the trust exists.

Note: If your organization admin has restricted you from trusting browsers, you will not be shown this screen.

How long does the trust exist?

By default, the trust for a browser will exist for 180 days. This is also known as the MFA lifetime. However, if you are part of an organization, your administrator may reduce the number of days by enforcing security policies.

How to remove a trusted browser?

  1. Go to
  2. Click Multi-factor Authentication in the left menu, then click Trusted Browsers.
  3. Click on the browser you want to remove.
  4. Click Remove.
