Multi-factor authentication is used to better secure your data. You will need to setup this feature through one of our three methods offered. These security features offer you even more control and security over your sensitive data within your analytic platform experience.
These options will show as available on your account when you first sign in to your account. Click on "setup" on either option to complete the setup of either (or all) options. Our recommendation would be to complete all methods. You can choose a specific one each time you log in depending on your situation. While the Okta Verify app may take longer to initially setup, we've found it makes the process more seamless for each subsequent log ins.
