App-based 2FA only

If you don't have access to your 2FA device to get an authentication code, you can use a backup code instead. Each backup code can only be used once.

If you don't have access to your emails, you'll need to call us to recover your account.

Downloading, printing or regenerating your backup codes

When you first set up app-based 2FA, you're prompted to download 10 backup codes. You can download or print these codes again by signing into

From here you can also regenerate 10 new backup codes. This deactivates your old codes, which is handy if you've lost them.

Generate new backup codes before using the last two!  You might need these to generate a new set of backup codes, otherwise you'll need to call us to recover your account.

Using a backup code

Here's how to sign in using a backup code:
