Don't have a smartphone with a working camera? No problem, you can still configure MFA manually by following these steps:

1. Download an Authenticator Application

  • First things first, download and install an authenticator application.

  • Visit our help page for a list of authenticator applications.

2. Login to Ansarada Profile

  • Upon accessing Ansarada, enter your email address and password like always.

3. Enter the unique enrolment code

  • You'll be presented with a QR code.

  • Select I don't have a smartphone with camera

  • You'll then see the unique enrolment code.

  • Open the authenticator app you just downloaded. Depending on the app, you might need to log in with your Google or Microsoft account. Alternatively, you might be able to use the app without logging in.

  • In the app, you'll likely see an option that says Add Account > Enter Key Manually. Click on this option to continue and enter unique enrolment code.

4. Confirm Setup

  • Once the authenticator app generates one-time password (OTP), which is a 6-digit code, enter this code into the MFA setup process on your account. This confirms that the app is correctly synced with your account.

  • Your authenticator app will start generating a 6-digit code that resets every 30 seconds.

5. Save Recovery Code

  • Make sure to save the recovery code in a safe and secure place. Recovery code can be used in case you can't access your authenticator app or lose access to your authenticator app.

  • Check out this help page on how to use your recovery code to login with MFA.

6. Enjoy Enhanced Security 🎉

  • Congratulations! You've successfully downloaded and set up an authenticator application for MFA. Now, when you log in, you'll need to provide the 6-digit code generated by the app, in addition to your regular password.
