Secondary emails are useful in case you forget your Okta password. When you forget your password, Okta sends you a link to reset it via email. But what if you access your Aims’ email through Okta? Then you wouldn’t be able to read the email! To solve this problem, Okta can send the reset link to your secondary email address, which should be on a system not managed by Okta.
If you notice that your secondary email address is incorrect, be sure to update it in Banner or Workday.
