Enable Time-based OTP for Two Factor Authentication

TrakIT now supports time-based one-time passwords (TOTP) that can be generated by most Two-Factor Authentication apps.

To enable TOTP authentication for any user, modify the user's profile and select "TOTP".

Once enabled, TrakIT will ask the user to register their preferred authenticator app upon the next login.

The user can use any TOTP-based authenticator app like Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy, Duo and many others. 

Once registered, the user will be asked for an OTP every time they successfully log in.

TOTP authentication is superior to SMS-based TFA, as it is more secure and doesn't require data or a network connection.

For any questions or concerns, or if you're facing any difficulty with setting up your TOTP based TFA, please contact TrakIT Support.
