Before installing the ESET Secure Authentication Application on your device

Before you can use the ESET Secure Authentication app on your mobile phone, you must install and configure the ESET Secure Authentication core service on your server and then provision the devices you want to use with the ESET Secure Authentication mobile app.

The instructions below detail the configuration of ESET Secure Authentication for use with Microsoft Outlook Web Access. For more information on server setup and provisioning, or to configure ESET Secure Authentication for use with a VPN, see the ESET Secure Authentication Installation Manual.

If after configuring the ESET Secure Authentication core service you are still experiencing issues, visit our ESET Secure Authentication (ESA) Setup Checklist.
