Two Step Verification

How does it work?

Setting up 2-Step Verification is becoming commonplace as a way to make it harder for scammers to gain control over your identify and accounts -- and to prove that you're really you.

 It’s quick and easy and allows us to verify you right away. 

  • After you enter your My Account login information and click Log In, you’ll be asked to complete a second verification step.
  • A code will be texted to your mobile phone. Make sure to have your phone with you.
  • Once you receive the code, please enter it into the verification page.

Keep your mobile number up-to-date

To ensure your success with 2-Step Verification, please confirm your mobile phone number in My Account. If you do not have a mobile number listed with us, please add it.

  • From My Account, go to Account > My Profile.
  • Under My Information, scroll to your phone and email contacts.
  • Verify your mobile phone number is correct. Click on the pencil icon if you need to update or add your mobile phone number.
