Sign in to the user portal with two-factor authentication
Administrators can enable two-factor authentication for their users, which enforces an additional layer of identity verification. Once two-factor authentication is enabled, an authenticator application must be used to provide an authentication code at sign in. The authentication check is performed whenever a user attempts to:
- Sign in to the user portal.
- Sign in with the OpenVPN Connect app to add a connection profile.
- Establish a VPN connection using the Connect app.
Once two-factor authentication is enabled, users must follow these steps to sign in to the user portal:
- Navigate to <account name>.openvpn.com.
- Enter your username and password, then click Sign In.
- Enter the code from your authenticator application.
- Note that if an administrator has enabled the the Allow Trusted Devices feature, you can choose to allow a trusted device. Check this box to ensure that you aren’t prompted for additional authentication on a trusted device for 30 days after the initial authentication.
