    1. download the app
    2. set the time on your device.

    When you’re finished, close the instructions, and click Yes, continue in the Setup Wizard.

  1. The next page of the Setup Wizard asks you to open the authenticator app you just downloaded, and either scan the QR code or enter the highlighted key into your authenticator app.

If you’re using the authenticator app on your computer, you won’t see the QR code. You can just enter the highlighted key into your app.

  1. Your app will generate a 6-digit verification code. Enter that into the empty field at Step 2 on the Wizard page, and click Authenticate.

From now on, you’ll need to use the authenticator app every time you log into Aconex. Bookmark these instructions for logging in with 2-Step Verification to help you next time you log in.
