How to generate a batch of passcodes
Passcodes can be used for authentication in the event you're offline or without cellular network.
You can request a batch of 10 one-time use passcodes to be sent to your mobile phone via text message to your cellphone. Generating these passcodes are useful as a backup in the event that your registered devices become inaccessible and you need to login/register a new device. We also recommand to generate these passcodes before traveling in case you experiance no cellular data service.
Note: Users can use any code from the text message, the order does not matter. Passcodes are one-time use. The passcode will work as long as it has not been used in the past and they have not received a new batch of passcodes. Requesting a new batch of passcodes will invalidate all previous batches.
