  • Your Cirro user ID - the name you use to login with.

  • A temporary password - Use this then enter your own password. this can only be used once, and immediately after you’re prompted to enter your own password.

  • A link to the Cirro One Time Password QR code (if set up).

  • A link to the selected Two-Factor Authentication code (if set up).

  • The dates your account is valid.

  • Click Ok.

Now login using your new password.

Password: MyC1rroPassw0rd

User Account has Timed One-Time Password

If you’re issued a Timed One-Time Password (TOTP), you’ll also need to set-up an Authenticator App like Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Duo or Saaspass. These are all available on Apple and Android app stores.

  • Open your computer and the Cirro account email.

  • Click the email link - this opens a browser with the QR code.

  • Now open your authenticator app (e.g., Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Duo, Saaspass).

  • Add a new QR code in the app then scan the code from the email message.

After setup, the authenticator app generates a time-limited unique six-digit password you can use as your login password, or append it to the end of your standard password.

Now login using your new password.

Password Type Example
Only Timed One-Time Password 123456
Standard and TOTP combination MyStandardP4ssw0rd123456
