View and regenerate Two-Step Verification backup codes
Two-Step Verification uses a passcode generated by an authenticator app, such as Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator which are compliant with RFC-6238, in addition to your usual account sign-in.
Although N-central supports RFC-6238 for Two-Step Verification, only Google Authenticator was tested.
After signing in to MSP N-central, a list of ten backup codes displays. These backup codes are automatically generated for you to use if you are in a location where you do not have access to your mobile device when signing in to MSP N-central. Copy these backup codes to a safe but accessible location.
You can only use each backup code once. They are not time-sensitive and will not expire (unless they are regenerated).
Your account must be configured to use Two-Step Verification two factor authentication method.
If you have misplaced your list of backup codes, you can still view the list and regenerate it if necessary.
