2. You can configure MFA via SMS or an Authenticator App.

  • If you choose to set up MFA via SMS, then you will have to use in the next step the authentication code that you received on your phone.
  • To set up MFA using an Authenticator App, you will need first to open the app on your phone, add a new login and scan the QR code on the screen (there may be differences in these steps depending on the app that you are using).

3. Grab the Authentication Code from your Authenticator App or the SMS message you received (depending on which method you prefer), type it in the Authentication Code field, and click Activate.
