Sign in to the VIP Dashboard with GitHub

Using a GitHub user account for multi-factor authentication to log in to the VIP Dashboard also requires VIP Cloud authentication.


To use a GitHub user account for authentication, it must be registered with the same email address to which the VIP Dashboard invitation was sent.


If a GitHub user account is selected for authentication the first time a user logs in to the VIP Dashboard, it must be the authentication method used for logging in each time afterward. The GitHub and authentication methods cannot be used interchangeably.

To sign in with a GitHub user account:

  1. Navigate to the VIP Dashboard.
  2. Select the button labeled “Sign in with GitHub“.
    • If the user is not currently logged into their GitHub user account in that browser, they will be directed to a login prompt labeled “Sign in to GitHub to continue to VIP Cloud“.
    • A user must be successfully logged in to GitHub in order to access the next step.
  3. In the next step titled “Verify Your Identity“, the user must retrieve the one-time passcode generated by the VIP Cloud authentication method that was chosen earlier. Enter the one-time passcode into the field labeled “Enter your one-time code“.
    • Users can select the option for VIP Cloud authentication to “Remember this device for 30 days”.
  4. Select the “Continue” button.


It is not required to have two-factor authentication enabled for a GitHub user account, but it is strongly encouraged. Enabling two-factor authentication for third-party user accounts whenever possible is one of many security recommendations for users.
