Setting Up 2 Factor Authentication without a Smart Phone

If your Client has set up the Vitality Platform to need 2 Factor Authentication, you will need to install the Google Authenticator App. This APP can be installed on your Smart Phone. If you do not have a Smart Phone, then you will need to install this extension on your computer
