Using OTPs to authenticate

You can use a one-time-passcode (OTP) to log in to the Admin Portal. You use a third party authenticator (like Google Authenticator) or the Centrify client application to scan a Privileged Access Service generated QR code and configure the OTP. Centrify supports any authenticator app that support the OATH TOTP standard. Refer to for more information.

If an internet connection is not available, you can also use an offline OTP to log in to the Admin Portal. Users must log in first in online mode before an offline OTP profile is created.

Important: Your system administrator must enable these features before you can use them.
