TOTP stands for time-based one-time passcode and is also known as a soft token. This authentication method uses an algorithm to generate codes that you can enter to confirm your identity. The algorithm requires no internet connection to generate or verify the passcodes so it lets you authenticate even if you're off-line

When you try to open an enterprise application, you're prompted to select the secondary authentication method. Select the one-time code and the ​Akamai MFA​ service pushes a unique numeric code to your device. Submit the code to authenticate and access the required application.

  1. In the authentication prompt, select the One-time code by clicking Use a Passcode.

  2. Go to your account in the ​Akamai MFA​ mobile app on your enrolled device to check the passcode.
