Penn WebLogin two-step verification: Install an authenticator app

An authenticator app generates verification codes for Penn WebLogin.

On your phone or mobile device: Download the appropriate app for your platform (visit these links with your mobile device). If you already have an authenticator app installed, you don't need to install anything else. Ignore any set-up instructions specific to Gmail, Google, or other non-Penn accounts. Simply download the free app and install it on your device, then opt in via these steps.

Penn WebLogin two-step verification is built on the OATH open industry-wide standard, using the TOTP algorithm. The apps listed above have been widely tested at Penn and are known to be compatible and supported with Penn's implementation, but any authenticator app that can generate codes using TOTP should work with Penn WebLogin two-step verification.
