About Okta Verify
Okta Verify is an MFA factor and authenticator app developed by Okta. The app is used to confirm a user's identity when they sign in to their Okta account.
After an end user installs the app on their primary device, they can verify their identity by approving a push notification or by entering a one-time code. When a user signs in to their organization, the Okta Verify app prompts them to verify their identity.
Note: End users can only register one device at a time with Okta Verify. To register a new device, users must reset their Okta Verify account and then open Okta Verify to add and register their new device.
