Optionally, it’s possible to provide a custom branded experience for your users including things like:

  • A custom vanity URL
  • Custom secure QR code colors
  • Your company logo and colors

In order for Trusona to create your custom gateway you need to provide to Trusona hex values and images for the following:

5.1. Provide images

  • Hero image: 1440 x 1800 px
  • Logo image: 500 x 500 px

5.2. Provide hex values

  • Animated dot color: this is the color dots that animate
  • List of QR colors: multiples of the same color will appear more (provide 2 hex values)
  • Link color:
  • Text color:
  • Background color: affects background behind the QR, usually we just do pure white (#FFFFFF)

6. Configuring Vanity URL

Add a new CNAME DNS record for your domain.

  1. Set the “host” value to the URL you’d like users to see when logging in
  2. Set the “Answer” value to ssl.trusona.net
  3. Set the TTL to 300

Here’s an example of a CNAME answer when retrieved by dig tada.trusona.com.

tada.trusona.com. 3600 IN CNAME ssl.trusona.net.
