NCP Authenticator works with 2-Step Verification for your NCP VPN Access or any other online service using the TOTP method to provide an additional layer of security when signing in.
Once configured, 2-step authentication protects your account by requiring both your password and an additional passcode, thus adding an extra layer of security. NCP Authenticator will generate these passcodes for you in a convenient way, directly on your smartphone or tablet, without the need for Internet connection.
NCP Authenticator does not only operate with a NCP vpn account, but also with accounts from Google, Dropbox, PayPal and all the other providers who implement authentication in this standardized way.
