MFA Instructions for your Web Browser


Step 1: Search for an Authenticator Application

The tools we recommend are a Google Authenticator Extension for your Chrome browser; or 2FA for Edge. However, you can use any time-based Authenticator Application. 


Step 2: Download or Install the Application

Search for the desired tool in another tab and follow the links to install the Application.


Step 3: Configure Your Multi-Factor Authentication

During registration in Symphony, open the authenticator application and follow the prompts to scan a QR code or enter a setup key. The system will create unique one-time passcodes for you when you sign in with your MFA tool.

  1. Select the QR code extension from your browser 
  2. Use the Scan option
  3. Drag the frame over the corresponding QR code on the screen. 
  4. You will see a success message when you have captured the QR code. 


If you have multiple Symphony accounts, be sure to rename the codes to reflect the contract vehicle for the One-Time Passcode (OTP). You must have a unique code for each Symphony URL you access.
