This section describes how to use the recovery code set in the group policy when logging in a macOS device.
For information on how to set the recovery code, please refer to here.
This function is for paid plans (Premium).
Please purchase a plan when using this service.
The recovery code serves as a last resort solution for situations where users are unable to log into their devices due to issues such as lost or damaged authenticators, and are unable to disable two-factor authentication because the device is not connected to the network. By entering this recovery code in the password field, users can deactivate two-factor authentication and regain access to their accounts.
This feature requires software version 1.2.0 or higher.
Please refer to here for instructions on how to set it up in the admin console.
Start the macOS terminal and open the login screen.
Enter the recovery code set in the group policy in the password entry field and press Enter.
After successful entry, the message “The forced YubiKey logon function has been deactivated because a recovery code has been entered.” is displayed in the upper right corner of the login screen.
Using the recovery code when logging in on a macOS device will remove the two-factor authentication setting.
Continue to enter the “Mac account password” in the password entry field and press Enter.
If the password is correct, the login was successful.
Finally, uninstall the software.
After using the recovery code, please uninstall it by referring to the How to uninstall Mac Login.
This is all about how to use the recovery code.
