Two-step verification, sometimes known as two-factor authentication or 2FA, is an additional security measure to help protect your account. If you enable two-step verification, you’ll be asked to provide a six-digit code in addition to your password.
For two-step verification to work properly, you’ll need a mobile phone that can either receive text messages or that can run a third-party authentication app.
- Sign in to your Grammarly account and click Security in the left-side panel.
- Click Turn On. You may be asked to verify your account again by entering your password.
- Enter a valid phone number that can receive text messages and click Send Code.
- Enter the verification code you receive via text message.
- Click Turn On to enable two-step verification.
Important: Please save the backup codes you receive in the next popup. If you lose access to your phone, a backup code is the only way you’ll be able to sign in to new devices.
Once you set up two-step verification, you’ll receive a confirmation email. Next time you log in on a new device, you will be asked to complete the additional verification.
Tip: You can skip the verification step on a particular device if you designate it as a trusted device. Don’t worry—anyone attempting to sign in on a different device will still have to enter a code.
