What are recovery codes?
Recovery codes are unique, one-use codes generated as part of the 2-Step Verification process. In the event you lose access to the device you have set 2-Step-Verification on, you can use one of your recovery codes in place of a code generated by the authenticator app to access your account.

To recover full access to your account before exhausting your recovery codes, you can disable 2-Step Verification yourself or get in touch with our support teams.

You can also disable 2-Step Verification and re-enable it to generate a new set of recovery codes.

Please note: Support does not have the ability to view or retrieve your recovery codes.

How do I store my recovery codes?
Recovery codes will only display once during the process of enabling 2-Step Verification. You can print the codes out by selecting Print

Additionally, you can take a screenshot of the codes and store them in a safe location.

We strongly recommend storing your recovery codes someplace other than the device you have activated 2-Step-Verification on, to allow for easier account recovery should you lose access to that device.
