When the app is loaded for the first time, it will not detect any previous settings or the offline cached mode.
The setup wizard will guide you through the 4 main steps in configuring the app.
This step will search automatically for an existing user preferences secret and or any global Autodiscoverpreferences.
The screen may show additional screen before the final state it found. please wait until its finished.
Below you see the three possible screens the setup wizard can show.
No preferences found, manual configuration required.
If the app fails to find any preferences secrets then the app will ask you to supply a template ID.
Autodiscover references found and loaded, almost done.

User preferences found and loaded, no configuration remaining
In this situation the user preferences secrets were found and loaded. This has loaded your previous setfavorites, offline password and other application settings that may apply. you can continue to start using theapp
The offline mode step asks you for a passphrase. with this passphrase the app will encrypt all local storage as cache with 256 bit AES encryption. This will enable the offline mode and the option to store your settings, favorite and offline passphrase in secret server in a user preferences file.
In the offline mode the 4PA Authenticator app can be used without an active internet connection. This is optional and requires that you to create an offline passphrase. This passphrase is used to encrypt your data locally.
If disabled or not configured, your session is limited to 20 minutes and you will be logged out after expiration.
