Set an automatic push notification

In Manage My Devices, you can set push notifications to be sent automatically to your default authentication device. With this setting enabled, you're going to receive push requests immediately after you complete the primary authentication. This shortens significantly the secondary verification process and provides you with a frictionless authentication experience.

  1. In the authentication prompt, click My Devices.

  2. Confirm your identity using the enabled second factors on your enrolled mobile device. For example, click Send me a Push and use this authentication method to confirm your identity.

    Just after completing the secondary authentication, the Manage My Devices page displays. The settings dialog contains your enrolled authentication devices.

  3. To enable automatic push notification, click the Set as Default star icon next to the Push factor. With this setting, ‚ÄčMFA sends automatic push notifications to your enrolled mobile device.



If you have enrolled more than one authentication device, you have to first set your default device where you'll receive automatic authentication requests. See Set your default device.

Next time when you attempt to access the protected application, ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč automatically sends a push notification to your trusted mobile device.


Depending on your enrolled trusted device, you can enable one of the following factors as your default authentication method:

  1. Click Back to Login.

    You receive an automatic push notification on your default authentication device.

  2. To confirm your identity, go to your mobile device and click Allow. To cancel the push notification, click Cancel on your desktop device.
