How do I set up and use multi-factor authentication apps for Tableau Online?


  • Tableau Online
  • Multi-Factor Authentication


Below is an overview of setting up and using multi-factor authentication for your Tableau Online user account.

When initially setting up multi-factor authentication, you can choose to receive a notification or use a temporary authentication code. If you choose the code option during setup, a temporary code will appear on your authenticator app when you sign in using multi-factor authentication.

Note: These codes are time sensitive, and if your temporary authentication code switches to a two word recovery code, you can request that a new temporary authentication code is sent. The two word phrase in the authenticator app is a recovery code, and not the temporary code you will use to authenticate to your Tableau Online site.
