Authy is straightforward and free to use. It can be installed through Google Play (Android users) or the App Store (Apple users).
Install the app to your chosen device, entering your mobile phone number and email address. You will then be sent a PIN to enter to verify your phone or tablet.
Using Authy in Quantum
Once you have been registered as a new Quantum user a link will be emailed to you, inviting you to create an account. Click on the link and enter the username and password provided in the email.
You have now created a Quantum account. You will be prompted to reset your password when you first login.
Next, you will be asked to set up 2 factor authentication.
When you click 'OK' a QR code will appear on the screen (see below).
Open the Authy app that you have downloaded to your mobile device.
Tap the 'Add Account' button at the bottom of the Authy screen.
Click on the 'Scan QR Code' button and scan the code on your computer screen.
On the next screen that appears on your mobile device, you can rename this account to Quantum if you wish. Click save.
The Authy app will present you with an 'admin token' (see below).
Enter the 6 digit admin token into the 'Enter security token' box on your Quantum screen (see below).
You should now be successfully logged in.
In future, each time you need to login to Quantum you will open the Authy app and a code will be displayed for you to enter into the login screen.
