OneLogin gives users the ability to access the applications and other resources they need to do their job by logging in once to a single interface.
Platforms like OneLogin are known as Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions that are primarily used to provide their users with a Single Sign-on (SSO) experience.
Multi-factor authentication(MFA) and two-factor authentication(2FA) add an extra layer of security to your users' accounts, drastically reducing the chances of sensitive information being hacked by cybercriminals.
OneLogin allows using Token2 programmable tokens
and Token2 Security keys
for two-step verification.
In this article, we will show the procedures required to enroll and use Token2 Security keys for two-factor authentication for OneLogin user account .
• A OneLogin account with admin rights
• Admin access to enable security keys (not required if security keys are already enabled)
• Modern browser supporting security keys
• A Token2 FIDO security key

The security key generates the required credentials, and the browser passes them on to OneLogin to complete the verification.
