Multi-factor app enrollment URL configuration

Use this guide to create an app enrollment page with a URL workflow for end users to connect to their profile in the following ways to enroll and provision any of the following:

  • SecureAuth Passcode app to receive one-time passcodes (OTPs) on their desktop

  • SecureAuth Authenticate app to receive time-based one-time passcodes (TOTPs), push notification one-time passcodes (OTPs), Push-to-Accept, and Symbol-to-Accept login requests on their mobile device

Once provisioned to use SecureAuth Passcode and SecureAuth Authenticate, the passcode and login requests from the app is used to validate the end user attempting to log in to a protected resource.

For supported versions of mobile apps, OTP clients, desktop browsers, and paired smartwatches, see the SecureAuth compatibility guide.
