Okta - Setup and Use Google Authenticator

This article reviews the setup process of connecting Google Authenticator to Okta for MFA access.

Google Authenticator is a mobile application that allows users to generate a 6-digit code which they will then enter when prompted by the Okta system. The application is created and managed by Google and can be used for many other services outside of Parkland College.

NOTE: if you are using Okta Verify or Google Authenticator and you get a new mobile device, you MUST call the Tech Service Desk to have them clear out those factors on the admin side so that you can do a fresh setup of the app/s on your new phone.
