The mobile app can be either an authenticator-only app that handles second-factor authentication or a complete business app that handles the full user experience, meaning both access and authentication.

For information on using the SDK to integrate these capabilities into your mobile applications, see PingOne MFA Native SDKs.

After you have developed the MFA-enabled app, follow these steps to use the app with PingOne:

  1. Create a native application in your PingOne environment and enter the necessary configuration information. For details, see Adding an application and Editing an application - Native.
  2. Create an MFA policy that references the native application that you created in the previous step. See Adding an MFA policy.
  3. Add an MFA step to your authentication flow. In that step, reference the MFA policy that you created. See Adding a multi-factor authentication step.
