It is very advantageous to setup multiple factors for Multifactor Authentication (MFA). If you ONLY have SMS setup and texting services are unavailable, you will not be able to login.

A QR code will show up on the computer screen. You will need to scan this using your phone once the Okta Verify App is installed. DO NOT Scan this one, you will need your own. (This is just an example).
