If your organisation uses multi-factor authentication for more secure login to Applied, in addition to your username and password, you will also need to generate a one-time passcode (OTP) each time you log in.
This article will guide you through the steps required to generate passcodes and gain secure access to your Applied account.

Step 1: Select and download an authenticator app
If you don’t already have an authenticator app installed on your mobile device, you can download one from the App Store or Google Play. Popular options include Authy, Google Authenticator and Microsoft Authenticator.
Step 2: Follow the setup instructions in the app
Each app handles initial setup slightly differently. Some may require you to input your mobile number for the purposes of verifying and backing up your account, others will require you to accept terms and conditions or log in to a Google or Microsoft account.
Step 3: Add a new account
Select ‘add an account’ to open the QR code scanner.
Scan the QR code on the Applied login page.
Step 4: Enter the six-digit code
In your authenticator app, select the Applied account.
A new one time passcode (OTP) will be generated every 30 seconds.
Input the current OTP and hit ‘Done’ before the 30 seconds have elapsed.
