In order for TOTP to work correctly, you'll need to install an authenticator app to your mobile device first. We've listed a few that we recommend below. 

Authenticator app


Enabling TOTP on Shifter

1. Login to Shifter dashboard 

2. Navigate to Account

3. Scroll down to view your sites' Two-factor authentication settings

4. Click 'Set up with Authenticator App'.


5.  Scan displayed QR code with the authenticator app, input the generated code then, click [Enable]

6. To test TOTP settings, log out from the Shifter dashboard and log in again. 

Each time you log in, your authenticator app will generate a unique code after you have submitted your username and password. 

Enter the verification code generated by your authenticator app to complete log-in. 

That's all!
