Setup 2-step verification

Two-step verification, also known as 2-factor authentication or 2FA, is an optional but highly recommended security feature.

Once enabled, logging into Splashtop will require an additional six-digit security code, in addition to your account's password. The security code will be generated by an authenticator app on your mobile device. (Text messaging is not supported.)

This means, even if someone has guessed or stolen your Enterprise account ID and password, he or she will not be able to log into your account and access your computers.

Splashtop Enterprise support TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password algorithm) based 2 step verification, and verified with the following authenticator apps: 

Setup Guide

Why I always can't pass 2-sv passcode?

For TOTP is time and clock based authentication, if there are obvious system clock difference, like more than 30 seconds, you may encounter error to pass 2-sv passcode. please make sure your Gateway and authentication device has synchronized system time.
