Self-enroll your third-party OTP device

If your company has enabled third-party OTP devices as the secondary authentication method in ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč, you can enroll your mobile app authenticator in the service.
The third-party OTP devices are mobile apps such as Duo Mobile, Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Okta Verify, or any other mobile app that generates TOTP (time-based one-time passcodes) after scanning the QR code.
To enroll and activate your third-party OTP device, you have to pair the mobile app on your trusted device with the ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč back end, and, next, you can use passcodes to authenticate to your enterprise applications.
