Sign in with Multi-factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) provides increased security and better access control to Platform9 resources. With multi-factor authentication, you are expected to provide a time-based one-time password (TOTP) to sign in, apart from the username and password.

A time-based password is generated by a multi-factor authentication application (MFA app).

Mobile users can install an MFA app such as Google Authenticator, Duo Mobile and Authy on their mobile phones. Laptop or computer users can install an MFA app such as Authy on their computers. Multi-factor authentication must be enabled on your account for you to be able to log in to Clarity using multi-factor authentication.
