When logging in to your DealPOS domain, you must fill in the password field as authentication to log in. In addition to using a password, you can also improve the security aspect of user login authentication by using TOTP (Time-based One-time Passwords).

TOTP stands for Time-based One-Time Passwords and is a common form of two-factor authentication (2FA). Unique numeric passwords are generated with a standardized algorithm that uses the current time as input. The time-based passwords are available offline and provide user-friendly, increased account security when used as a second factor.

When you're using the TOTP as the second authentication for login, There will appear an additional pop-up for inputting the TOTP after you input the user and password in the login page. You can set the TOTP on your DealPOS user by following the steps below.
