What is two-step verification?

SOLVEDBy Mint7Updated May 17, 2022

Two-step verification is a process that requires you to provide additional proof that you're the owner of an account when you sign in. Also called two-factor authentication or multi-factor authentication (MFA), it's a financial industry security standard.

Any time you sign in to an existing Intuit Account on an unrecognized computer or device, we'll ask you to prove your identity first. Usually, we'll send you a code through a text message, email, or automated phone call.

For an additional layer of security, you can turn on a second verification step each time you sign in with our two-step verification or the Google Authenticator app (iOS or Android). We call this opt-in two-step verification.

If you opt out of this feature, we'll still ask you to verify the first time you sign in on an unrecognized device. Keep in mind, updating the phone number connected to your Intuit Account automatically turns off two-step authentication. You can turn it back on with your new number.
