What is the Trusona gateway?

The Trusona gateway is the software that allows you to confirm your true persona and logs you into websites with Trusona enabled without you having to enter a password. On a computer or laptop, the gateway is a secure QR code that you scan with the Trusona app after clicking the ‘Log in to Trusona’ button on the website you are logging in to. On a mobile device, the gateway is a button that you click on the website that automatically redirects you to the Trusona app so that you can confirm your true persona.



How do you sign in using the Trusona Gateway?

The Trusona gateway will appear after you select the Trusona login button on a website integrated with Trusona but before being logged into your account. Then follow the steps below that match the type of device you are using.

On a computer or laptop:

When you scan the secure QR code within the Trusona app on your computer or laptop, a message will appear with "Accept" and "Reject" buttons confirming that you want to log in to that specific website. After you select “Accept” in the Trusona app, the website that you are logging into will refresh and you will be logged into your account. If you decide to toggle the "Trust this computer" feature at the bottom of the secure QR code, you will only have to scan the secure QR code once to log in to Trusona-enabled websites on that computer. 


On a mobile device:

When you push the Trusona login button to log in to a website on your mobile device, you will receive a push notification on that device. When this happens, click the notification to open the Trusona app, select "Accept", and you will be logged in.
