Set up Okta FastPass on Android devices

If your organization uses Okta FastPass, you can set up this authentication option when you add your Okta Verify account or later, when prompted by your technology department. With Okta FastPass, you can access Okta-protected applications securely without providing your password.

Note for administrators: This feature is only available on Okta Identity Engine.

If your organization asked you to set up Okta FastPass, but this option isn’t available on the Account details page, go to your organization’s app dashboard on another device. Click the arrow beside your name > Settings > Okta Verify, and click Set Up. Follow the instructions to add a new Okta Verify account on your device. The new account comes with Okta FastPass.

  1. Open Okta Verify and tap your account.
  2. On the Account details page, go to Ways to sign in > Okta FastPass and tap Set up.
