VIP Access adds strong authentication to your normal login in one of the following ways:
Dynamically generate a one-time use security code on your mobile device. Use that code along with your username and password.
Receive a push notification on your mobile device that you approve as authentication.
Use Touch ID or your security code in a push notification to authenticate yourself on your mobile device.
Note: Touch ID authentication requires that your mobile device is Touch ID capable and that you have registered a fingerprint on the device.
The strong authentication method you use depends on the method implemented by your participating organization.
You can generate a security code even if you do not have a network or mobile connection.

For greater security, you can require a Touch ID or push notification, in addition to device proximity, to unlock your computer.
Using VIP Access Proximity, you can forward your push notifications to a paired computer by enabling settings through Proximity screen.
