When you enable two-step verification, it makes your account safer by requiring both your password, and a phone number to sign in. If you turn on two-step verification, a security code will be sent to your phone every time you sign in.
To turn two-step verification on or off
- Tap the menu button.
- Tap your profile picture.
- Toggle Use two-step verification on or off. We'll walk you through the steps to set it up for the first time.
Once enabled, anytime you turn two-step verification off and back on again, you'll be asked to re-verify your phone number. We do this as an added layer of protection to make sure you still have access to the phone.
Important! When you turn on two-step verification, you have the option to us a PIN, or a backup code. If you lose your phone, the backup code will help you get into your account.
When you first enable two-step verification, you'll receive a backup code. You can also regenerate a backup code from your profile if you ever need to. Backup codes are only ever displayed once, so make sure you store it in a safe place, (not your phone :). If you lose it, you could be locked out of your account with no recourse.
