Click Scan a QR code if a QR code is visible on the screen or manually enter the details. The QR code is usually a visual representation of the following address URL-encoded:

  • Credential type: usually TOTP, but can be HOTP
  • Number of digits: usually 6, but can be up to 8
  • Algorithm: usually SHA-1, but can be SHA-256
