Learn what authentication apps are, how to use them, and the best apps to use.
Authentication apps generate security codes for signing into sites that require 2-factor authentication upon login.
Bluelink now uses 2 factor authentication (2FA) to login. With 2FA, users will be asked to enter in a security code generated by an authentication app installed on your mobile device or computer each time you login.
