Note: After Step 1, you can set up either OTP authentication (Step 2) or email authentication (Step 3), or both (Step 2 and Step 3).

STEP 2: Setup OTP-based Multi-Factor Authentication

  1. A pop-up will be displayed once you click on ‘Manage MFA’. Choose the ‘Setup OTP Authentication’ option to enable OTP-based authentication.

    1. Open an Authenticator app like Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator.

STEP 3: Setup email-based authentication

  1. From the pop-up displayed after you click on ‘Manage MFA’, choose the ‘Setup Email Authentication’ option to enable email-based authentication.

  2. An email containing a one-time password (OTP) will be sent to your registered Beaconstac email address from Auth0. Enter the OTP generated.

  3. Click on Submit to finish setting up email-based authentication.

Note: After setting up both OTP Authentication and Email Authentication, your MFA settings will look like the following:

STEP 5: Log out of your account after you’ve successfully completed the above steps.

STEP 6: Done! Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is now enabled for your account.

  1. Every time you log in to your Beaconstac account, you will be prompted to enter the one-time code after your username and password.

  2. The default authentication method chosen is OTP-based authentication. Click on ‘Try another method’ for choosing your preferred method.

  3. For authenticator OTP authentication, enter the OTP displayed in the authenticator app.
    For email OTP authentication, enter the OTP sent in your email.
    For recovery key OTP authentication, enter the recovery key which you had saved in Step 2.

IMPORTANT: Please save the new recovery key once you use the existing recovery key for authentication.
