Hi everyone,

We have added support for Authenticators (MFA) to the Unimus Portal.
All Authenticator apps should be supported - if you find something that doesn't work, please let us know.

We highly recommend to enable an Authenticator on your Portal account to improve security.

You can find the option to enable MFA under the "My account" section:

Please add download backup codes in MFA registration process, like download image, or txt file it is better than coppying and pasting from website.
Looks ok, work ok on my nexus 5x.

Thanks for the suggestion!

We wanted to add a backup code download option, but we ran out of time for our deployment deadline before it was ready.
We will make it happen as soon as possible.

I will post an update here as soon as it's live.

You are missing the option to get a code instead of scan the QR. Cannot register on a device w/ no camera (or non-working).
This means desktop TOTP clients (e.g Authy) cannot register at all.

Roger that, we will add a code-based registration process in addition to the QR code.

We have now added an option to download the backup codes during the MFA enrollment process.

We have also added the option to register MFA using a generated text-code on top of the QR code.
