SC 2.4.2 says:
"Web pages have titles that describe topic or purpose"

Topic and purpose differ between entering user data and entering a password token.

So I'd say the page title and h1 of the page have to change. This sounds like two different pages.

Subject: [WebAIM] Two Factor Identification


I am writing a two factor identification script, to allow uploads to my site.

a user must fill out a form
entering their name and email address

then a random five digit number (token) is generated, that token is emailed to the user.

on the page that the user entered their original data I have two forms the form that gathers the users original data (form1) and a form for the user to enter the token (form2)

my question is:

which is the best practice,
keeping both form1 and form2 on the same page or having form1 and form2 on separate pages
