No one likes remembering passwords (or worse, resetting the ones they’ve forgotten). But, believe it or not, there’s a reason so many vendors have strict password requirements, and it’s not just vague concerns over security. In 2017, stolen or weak passwords were to blame for 81 percent of hacking-related breaches. And breaches are bad for business.

That’s why we built OneAuth, a mobile app for multi-factor authentication (MFA) that helps you protect your account from password breaches. We’ve supported traditional two-factor authentication methods involving text messages, voice calls, and Google Authenticator for a while now. But with OneAuth, a mobile app exclusively for MFA, we’ve pushed the boundaries further to make authentication more convenient and more secure.

Zoho OneAuth | Multi-Factor Authentication


OneAuth lets you choose how you’d like to verify your identity. It offers four authentication modes:

  • Biometric – Face ID (iPhone X) and Touch ID (fingerprint, in Android)
  • Push notification – A push notification on your mobile phone when logging in
  • QR scanning – Scan a QR code to verify your identity
  • Time-based OTP – A numeric code, that lasts 30 seconds, to authenticate your login

If your mobile device happens to go offline, there’s no need to worry—OneAuth still lets you use MFA through an offline token.

OneAuth also supports single sign-on for mobile devices. Now you can sign in to the OneAuth mobile app and skip signing in to each Zoho app individually, just like how it works on the web. OneAuth goes beyond authentication, by helping you manage your active sessions, restrict sign-in to your account, and set up safe locations.

Zoho One Security

If your organization is using Zoho One, it’s easy to enforce strong password policies and multi-factor authentication across the board. You can also create security policies for specific user groups and choose your authentication modes to protect accounts with access to sensitive information.

    I can only use my Zoho mail from my laptop. I can’t log in using my smartphone. Sometimes, a laptop becomes cumbersome to carry and your phone is the best ally. I have installed OneAuth, a mobile app on my phone but can’t send a verification code to proceed on my mobile Zoho platform, It is very perplexing.

    Hi,
    It’s awesome I using it for my Zoho account, but it’s possible to using built-in Time-based OTP for another web accounts such as Twitter or LinkedIn?
    Thank you so much

    • Saravana Raja

      Thank you Hasan. Currently, it’s not possible to use OneAuth with other web accounts. We’re working on it though and it should get ready soon. Will let you know once it’s available for early access.
