One Time Passwords

Overview


This module adds another layer of protection to HostBill admin area based on One Time passwords using: TOTP (Time-based Based One Time Passwords). After entering regular password, administrator will be asked to provide the one time password, which can be easily obtained from supported mobile app.

It works great with mobile apps: 
- Android: Mobile-OTP
- iPhone: OATH Token


Please note - if you plan to use Google Authenticator mobile application, use our dedicated module to it: Google Authenticator, rather than this one.
