Enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) can greatly enhance your account security. We recommend using Authy as it's more secure. To set up 2FA with Twilio Authy follow the steps below: 

Twilio Authy Requirements:

Setting up Authy:

  4.  On the security page, under Two-factor authentication (2FA) settings, choose Authy.
  5. Click Activate now and a QR code appears.

  6. Scan the QR code with your phone by using the Authy app. A 6-digit code will appear on the app or you can copy the code for manual setup.
  7. Enter the 6-digit code into the field next to the QR code. Your code will be automatically submitted once you input the code.
  8. Once your code is automatically submitted, a menu will appear.
    To verify that 2FA via Twilio Authy is turned on, make sure it says Activated. For more security, check all the toggles under the Enable 2FA column.
