4. When the Plesk extension Google Authenticator is installed, scan the QR code with the Google Authenticator application to retrieve the code algorithm that will be used by the phone app to generate codes that Plesk will use to log you in. It will not be possible to log in to Plesk without the codes on your phone or the phones that have the algorithm.
