Tokens

Visit the Tokens page to find more information about the OTP tokens we support. You can mix any types of tokens you need.

PLEASE NOTE! Not to add all tokens manually, you may activate the Users’ Self-Service Portal that allows the users to enroll, register, and manage their Tokens themselves.

ATTENTION! One User can use only one Token for authentication on one Resource. The number of Tokens that you may add depends on the Service Plan you select.

PLEASE NOTE! You can also use the PIN code with any type of tokens you choose. If you activate the PIN code function, the user will have to enter the PIN code in the input field together with a one-time password (before or after a one-time password, depending on the choice of administrator). The one-time password and the PIN should be entered as one string without spaces or any other characters between them. This is an additional level of protection for the user account.
