Get started with Okta Verify on macOS devices

Okta Verify is an app that helps protect your data, ensuring that only you can access your app accounts.

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

If your IT department didn't already install Okta Verify on your device, install the app when prompted. If the app isn't available on your device contact your administrator.

Before you get started with Okta Verify, obtain your organization’s sign-in URL. It might be available in an activation email that you received from your administrator.

Open Okta Verify and click Add Account. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

A message confirms that your account was added successfully. When you access apps protected by Okta, you can now authenticate with Okta FastPass on your computer.

To set up Okta Verify on multiple desktop devices, see Add your current Okta Verify account to another macOS device by Bluetooth or Add your Okta Verify account to another Windows device by Bluetooth. You can also enroll in other authenticators such as Yubikey or SMS, and use these security methods to authenticate.
