Upon your first-time logging in to Okta, you will be prompted set up multifactor authentication (MFA). Simply follow the prompts. The available options are to be texted an SMS code or to receive a phone call. There is also a 3rd option in the form of the Okta Verify app. This gives you the option to use a rotating 6-digit code provided by the app for multifactor authentication, or simply using push notifications.   

For IOS.

For Android.

When setting your MFA option, please read the text on the screen and follow the instruction.

Set up authentication at the Okta site.
