One-Time passcode - HOTP-TOTP

One-Time passcode (HOTP/TOTP)

We are happy to announce that Thinfinity Remote Desktop 5.0 now supports 2FA natively in all its editions.
Thinfinity now counts with a built-in HTOP/TOTP server that enables you to add an extra layer of security to your projects using free and paid 3rd party Identity platforms.
Supported platforms :

    • Google Authenticator
    • DUO Mobile
    • Microsoft Authenticator
    • Okta Verify

Now you can enable an authentication experience to your environment that is accepted by all the most popular Cybersecurity frameworks.
To configure the One-Time passcode on Thinfinity Remote Desktop, you will have to add the authentication method on the tab “Authentication”, go to the tab “2FA”, and add the option “TOTP.”
