How to use the authenticator app for secure login?
We recommend an authenticator app as your second verification factor when logging in. Besides your password, you'll need the authentication app for a verification code. If your password is compromised, you'll have peace of mind knowing that only you can sign in.
How the authenticator app works
- You’ll need access to your mobile phone when you sign in to Virtual Vaults.
- Each time you log in, you'll need the verification code generated by the authentication app.
Set up or reconfigure your authenticator app
To set up or reconfigure your authenticator app you must first download and install an authenticator app. We support multiple authenticator apps. Here are a few options to get you started:
