Okta Verify

Okta Verify is a multifactor authentication (MFA) app that allows users to confirm their identity when they sign in to their Okta account or access Okta-protected resources. Users can also set up Okta Verify as a third-party authenticator for accessing sites that require multifactor authentication such as GitHub, Facebook, or Google.

To use Okta Verify, you must first enable and configure it for your org. Then, users must install the Okta Verify app on their devices and set it up. When users sign in to Okta, they can verify their identity by approving a push notification in the app, or by entering a one-time code provided by the app into Okta.

Are you an end user and want to set up and use Okta Verify? See Okta Verify for end users.
