AuthPoint is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) service that is used to require authentication when users log in to applications and services.
Before you can authenticate with AuthPoint, you must install the AuthPoint app on your mobile device and activate your WatchGuard token. You can also import third-party tokens to use MFA with services like Google or Facebook. For more information, see Activate a Software Token.
After you activate your token, you can authenticate with these methods:
- Push Notification
- One-Time Password (OTP)
- QR Code
You authenticate and manage your tokens from the AuthPoint mobile app. The app includes a QR code reader to authenticate with QR codes. On the Token Management page, you can see all of your active tokens and the OTP for each token. You can also change the name and icon for each token.
If you want additional security, you can protect your tokens with a PIN or with biometric protection. This requires you to unlock your tokens before you can authenticate with them. For more information, see Token Security.
