Browser cookies are used to make Multifactor Authentication work. If you try to log in from a fresh computer that has never signed into your GreggHost panel before, the Multifactor Authentication Code field will be hidden at first, and your first login attempt will be unsuccessful. GreggHost will recognize your account after the first attempt and make the Multifactor Authentication Code field available so you may log in.
