What is a time-based one-time password (TOTP) application?

A time-based one-time password or TOTP application is one that allows you to provide secondary validation to your account. This means as well as your written password, we can also ask for you to scan a QR code from your mobile device, for example, to add extra security when logging in. Some TOTP apps also support the secure backup of your authentication codes in the cloud and can be restored if you lose access to your device!

Some example applications you can use are:

- 1 Password
- Authy
- LastPass
- Google Authenticator
