Datto Partner Portal: How do I use the Authy Desktop app to log into the Datto Partner Portal?



How do I use the Authy Desktop app to log into the Datto Partner Portal?


  • Datto Partner Portal
  • Authy Desktop


Setting up the Authy desktop app

The Authy desktop app lets you log into the Datto Partner Portal via two-factor authentication (2FA) through a program installed on your computer. 

This article assumes you have already enabled two-factor identification in the Partner portal. If you have not done so, see our Getting Started With Two-Factor Authentication In The Datto Partner Portal for instructions.
When setting up the Authy mobile app, be sure to use the same phone number you used to enable 2FA on your Partner Portal account. If you used a desk phone, choose the Authy Chrome extension or Authy desktop app authentication methods.

1. Navigate to the Authy download page (external link). In the Desktop box, select your machine's operating system from the drop-down menu, and then click the Download button.
