This article describes how to use the mobile app Nexus Personal Mobile for online two-factor authentication (2FA) using push notifications. With online authentication, access requests are sent via out-of-band notifications to an associated mobile device that a user then approves or denies. 

Personal Mobile can also be used for offline one-time password (OTP) authentication.
