Verifying It's You

When you are logging in or updating sensitive information, we may ask you for additional verification via a text message or an email.

Logging in on a New Device

When you’re logging in from a new device, we’ll ask you to verify your login by typing in a code that we send to you via text message or email. We do this to make sure that the login attempt is from a device you have access to, and not from a malicious attacker. You should only need to do this one time per device; however, wiping device data or clearing cookies may require you to verify your device again.

Changing Sensitive Information

When you change sensitive information such as your email or phone number, we may ask you to verify your changes by typing in a code that we’ll send to you via text message or email. We do this to make these that these changes are authorized by you.
