Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)

Secure your Zoho Meeting account further with multi-factor authentication (MFA). There are numerous authentication methods to choose from, as listed below.


Common Options


  • SMS-based OTP

  • OTP authenticators

  • Zoho OneAuth

  • YubiKey (Hardware token)


SMS-based OTP

OTP authenticators


OTP Authenticators are mobile applications that use time-based one-time password (TOTP) to verify you during multi-factor authentication. You can sign in to your Zoho account via authenticators such as Zoho OneAuth. Learn more


Zoho OneAuth


Zoho's OneAuth is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) app designed to secure your Zoho accounts as well as other third-party accounts. Learn more 


With OneAuth, you can use a variety of authentication factors, such as:


  • Touch ID

  • Push notification

  • QR code

  • Time-based OTP


Note: You can check Trusted browser while authenticating to prevent being asked for your authentication code for this browser again.




YubiKey is a physical security key used for authentication purposes. These hardware plug-in devices support FIDO authentication protocols namely Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) and Universal Authentication Framework (UAF). They help secure computers, networks, websites, and online profiles, without requiring software installation or a battery. Zoho uses U2F-based YubiKeys for multi-factor authentication.

Setting up MFA for your account

  1. Log in to your Zoho account.

  2. Select an additional factor of authentication from Multi-Factor Authentication from your Zoho Accounts Settings. The configured settings will be active from your next login.




Note: You can add a backup number and save the backup codes. This can help you log in even when you face issues with your mobile or other authentication methods. Reach out to your admin or to Zoho Meeting support to help you reset your MFA if you ever lose or misplace your authentication device.
