Improved OTP authentication experience for users
Users now have the option include their OTP code after their username, separated with a comma. Users can see and verify the OTP code that they type when it is included with the username instead of the password. For example, the user can type “janedoe,555123” (no spaces) when authenticating.
Improved user experience on

BlackBerry UEM Client
now suggests alternative

version 12.10 and a version of
BlackBerry UEM Client
for
