What is a one time password?
Each time you need to authenticate with Blink, we'll send you a new password to use alongside your email address so you can log in.
Depending on how you registered we might send this password to your email address or your phone number via SMS.
The message you recieve from Blink will contain a smart link you can click on to submit the password automatically, we will also send the password itself so you can see if and type it in manually if you prefer.
A one-time-password (often abbreviated to OTP) is simply a password that's only valid once. When you've used it to log in with, you'll need to request another to authenticate with Blink elsewhere.
Don't forget that administrators can alter the log in mechanism to revert to regular passwords or by using a third party provider like Office365, Google or AD.
OTP is Blinks default authentication mechanism. It strikes a great balance of security and convenience:
You don't need to invent and remember another password for Blink, just click the links in the email or SMS we send you.
It's difficult for someone to guess your password because it's different every time you log in.
