Please get the code from your bind App. ???

Is there any way to update this verbiage? This has to be the dumbest notification I've ever seen on a user facing system notification.

What average user would know what a "bind App" is? Why not just say authenticator?

Even the MFA for this community forum says "Please enter the code from your Microsoft/Google authenticator app". That actually makes sense.

But for the user facing VPN, we ask for a "Bind App" like it's 1999 and we're on a UNIX system. I bet there are thousands of users worldwide every day going to their IT department and asking "what's my bind app".

    This is indeed very annyoing text. Did you find this option yet? I couldn't find it...

    There is no option to change this message. I've chased it down with Sonicwall, and our support vendor. This has to be one of the dumbest, most user unaware UI designs in public use. Like my original comment, about 80% of users are going to be super confused by the "bind app" terminology.

    It could also do with giving a clickable URL the user needs to visit in order to bind. That would speed things up.

    Shouldn't be hard to add this feature. Hopefully they can change that with a future update... not sure if they ever read this forum though...

    There is still no way to update, but at least this thread has received attention and an update from Sonicwall @Community Manager
