Users may prefer to use multi-factor (MFA) on a desktop client or are unable to set up MFA on a phone. This article outlines how MFA can be configured on a desktop client. 


Please install a desktop MFA of your choice. (One Login, Authy etc.)


MFA is already set up and configured on a phone. 

If you are looking to no longer use multi-factor on your phone and instead wish to use it on a desktop client, please open Account Settings > Password and Security > and RESET Multi-Factor authentication.
