I am trying to apply for a job on the government website. It requires an authenticator app 6-digit code be entered every time to sign in. I absolutely do not get the whole process. I downloaded the OTP app and thats as far as I get. The OTP Manager set up asks for a "label" a "secret" and a "issuer", and to allow or not allow exporting. I don't know what any of those categories are, and I'm not any closer to getting it to apply to the login page on the government website than I was two days ago. Does anyone know how this thing is supposed to work?

The Authenticator app will provide you a code that is 6 digits. You need to make sure you have registered the user account of the government site to the app so it will provide the code.
Some apps you will need to click on the entry to get the code. For example:

once pressed:

what site are you going to and what app are you using?
