**There are four other ways to authenticate your login. They are:

  • Okta Verify: An app you can install on your mobile phone (or computer) that generates the six-digit codes needed to authenticate. It also offers push authentication, a message generated by the app asking if you are attempting to login. You simply acknowledge using the app.
  • YubiKey: An actual key (it looks like a thumb drive) that you install in your computer's USB drive or tap against your phone to authenticate your login.
  • Google Authenticator: Similar to Okta Verify, it's an app you install on your mobile phone to authenticate your login.
  • Security Question: Allows you to set a security question and corresponding answer which you enter to authenticate your login.
