How does your TOTP function work?

Last updated on June 27, 2022

heylogin supports TOTP confirmation. This means that you can log in with one click using both your password and your 6-digit PIN received from an authenticator app. So we're replacing the Authenticator app for you, to give you a more pleasant online experience.

 

This means that as soon as you log in with heylogin on a website where you have activated TOTP, the TOTP is automatically filled in after the password.

 

The process to save your TOTP secret in heylogin looks different for each site, we have chosen GitHub for our example:

1.) Go to your profile settings. Under “Password and authentication”, click on the green “enable two-factor authentication” button

4.) Copy the 6-digit PIN shown on the login mask and paste it into the field “6-digit code”. Follow the instructions for your backup codes after this.

5.) Congratulations, your TOTP is now autofilled every time you log into GitHub. As mentioned above, this process is different on every website.

 

You can also add your TOTP secret manually in heylogin, both in the mobile app and the web app. Both will now always display the current TOTP PIN. This way you can also simply copy and paste in case the autofill doesn’t work.
