When you've installed and set up your authenticator app, enter the 6 digit code provided by the app in the Configure your two-factor authentication dialog box and click Confirm code to log in to the Portal.
For future logins to the Portal, use your authenticator app to generate a 2FA code to confirm your identity and complete the log in process.
