If you disable the ability to pair a specific authentication method, it is it does not affect authentication for existing users, or the use of that authentication method as a backup authentication method.
Note: This option is reversible. If pairing of an authentication type has been disabled, you can select the relevant pairing checkbox to re-enable pairing for that authentication type.
  1. In the PingID admin portal, go to Setup > PingID > Configuration.
  2. In the Authentication section, go to Alternate Authentication Methods.

    A screen capture of the Alternate Authentication Methods section.
  3. In the Pairing column, clear the check box for each authentication type that you want to disallow pairing. Click Save.
    After save is complete, users that want to pair a device no longer see the option to pair with the disallowed device. Existing users can continue to authenticate if already paired with that authentication method.
    Note: The Enable check box must remain selected so that users already paired with that authentication method can continue to authenticate with PingID.
