Scan the QR code from Google Authenticator app from your phone and this will generate a code that you need to enter into InControl2 and then you’re all set.

NB look at the timer icon as this refreshes every 20 seconds and then the key is obsolete, just wait for a new one and use this to log in.

NB if the scan does not work you can choose manual entry from the above image and click on the link in IC2 to generate your secret key.

The next time you log into InControl2 you will enter your username and password and a code from the Authenticator App.

NB if your Authenticator app is not working then you can get the token emailed to your account email address. Click on I do not have the authenticator with me.

If you are having issues Disable and re-enable 2FA in IC2.
