Pairing a device creates a trust between your device and your account so that you can use your device to authenticate during the sign-on process. After you have paired your device, each time you sign on to your account or application, you receive a one-time passcode (OTP) through SMS or voice call with which to authenticate.

You can use SMS or voice calls to access your account using a Web browser, to access your company's VPN, or to access a Windows login or Mac login machine.


The option to pair your account with this device type is defined by your company policy.
