The one-time bypass feature allows a user to authenticate a single time without performing two-step verification. The bypass is temporary and expires after a specified number of seconds.
In situations where the mobile app or phone is not receiving a notification or phone call, you can allow a one-time bypass so the user can access the desired resource.
