Manage Okta Verify accounts on macOS devices

After the initial setup of Okta Verify on your macOS device, you can add new accounts or remove accounts that you no longer need.

Note for administrators: Okta Verify for macOS is only available on Okta Identity Engine.

Add an account by accessing an Okta-protected app

When you access an Okta-protected app from your macOS device and select Sign in with Okta FastPass, Okta Verify checks if you have an account. If you don't have an account yet, the app guides you through the setup wizard. Follow the instructions.

Enable or update Touch ID or password confirmation

Open Okta Verify and click your account. Click the toggle to turn Touch ID or password confirmation on or off. If a verification method is required, you can't turn it off.

If your Okta Verify Touch ID or password settings are out of sync with the device settings, follow the messages to remediate the problem.

Set a default account for Okta FastPass authentication

If you have multiple Okta Verify accounts, you can set the most frequently used account as your default for signing in with Okta FastPass. You can change the default account.

Open Okta Verify and click an account. Then click the Set as default for Okta FastPass link. If the Account details page has a Default for Okta FastPass indicator in the top right corner, the account you selected is already set as the default.

Re-enroll an account

You can re-enroll your Okta Verify account if your admin has reset your Okta Verify authenticator. On the Account details page, click Re-enroll and follow the instructions.

Remove an account

Open Okta Verify and click the account you want to remove. Click Remove account and follow the prompts.
