Then validate your password to save it in your safe.
By selecting it, on the right-hand information panel, you will be given the one-time password (OTP or 2FA) that you will need to connect to the website concerned. This password will be regenerated every 30 seconds, the loading loop indicating the time remaining to use the password before its regeneration.
