Hopsworks QR Code needs to be scanned with Google/Microsoft Authenticator

Two-factor authentication: Scan the QR Code with Google Authenticator

Register a new account with a valid email account. If you have two-factor authentication enabled, you will then need to scan the QR code to save it on your phone. If you miss this step, you will have to recover your smartphone credentials at a later stage.

In both cases, you should receive an email asking you to validate your account. The sender of the email will be either the default hopsworks@gmail.com or a gmail address that was supplied while installing Hopsworks. If you do not receive an email, wait a minute. If you still haven’t received it, you should contact the administrator.

Validate the email address used in registration

If you click on the link supplied in the registration email, it will validate your account. You will not be able to login until an administrator has approved your account. [1].
