Information about 2-Step Verification

QUESTION:

What is 2-Step Verification?

ANSWER:


2-Step Verification (also known as 2-Factor Authentication or 2FA) is an optional feature that provides an extra layer of security to your account.

Once you have set it up, you will be asked to provide a unique code every time you log in to your Ubisoft Account.

If someone other than you attempts to connect to your account while 2-Step Verification is active on your account, they will be asked to provide a code that is randomly generated and received via an application on your phone or an email.

They should not be able to access your account if they don't have access to your mobile application or to your emails, and you will receive an email from Ubisoft informing you about potential suspicious activity on your account. 

If the password and login entered by this person is correct, it is possible that you could see successful connections on your Account Management website, that do not come from you.

This means your login details may have been compromised and you need to change your password

We recommend that you update it to something unique to your Ubisoft account that you do not use across other online services. 

2-Step Verification is not currently available across all services, however it is used across some of our key services that contain your personal information, like Uplay.
