How to set up two-step verification

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.

  1. Sign in to your Grammarly account and click Security in the left-side panel. 
  2. Click Turn On. You may be asked to verify your account again by entering your password.
  3. Enter a valid phone number that can receive text messages and click Send Code.
  4. Enter the verification code you receive via text message.
  5. 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.
