Add your Okta Verify account to an iOS device from the apps dashboard Settings page

If you already use Okta Verify and want to set up your account on a new device, you might be able to start a new enrollment from the Okta End-User Dashboard. Some restrictions apply.

  • Ensure that you can still access the Okta End-User Dashboard. You must meet at least one of these conditions:
    • You still have the old device that you registered with Okta Verify and the app is still working.
    • In addition to Okta Verify, you previously set up at least one other security method such as SMS (text), email, or Security Key or Biometric Authenticator (among others). See Sign in to resources protected by Okta.
  • If you don’t have other security methods set up and can't access your company's Okta End-User Dashboard account, contact your company’s help desk.
