Two-factor Authentication Recovery Codes

Once you enable Two-factor Authentication in Invicti Enterprise, the service generates ten Recovery Codes, as illustrated.

The next time you log in to Invicti Enterprise, you will be asked for your email address and password, as usual. Next, you will be asked for the one-time verification code from your mobile app. If you are unable to access the mobile app during the login process, use one of the Two-factor Authentication Recovery Codes.

Download or copy the Recovery Codes to a secure place where only you can access them. Recovery Codes are needed only when you need to log in but do not have access to the two-factor authentication mobile app to generate a one-time code.

Please note that a Recovery Code can only be used once. If you use them all, disable and enable Two-factor Authentication again to regenerate new ones.

How to Use Recovery Codes
  1. Log in to your Invicti Enterprise account using your username and password. If you have two-factor authentication enabled, the Two-factor Authentication window is displayed.
  2. Select the Can’t access your phone? link. The Recovery Code field is displayed.
  3. Enter your Recovery Code.
  4. Select Sign In.
