Disable 2-Step Verification

 

This topic shows how to disable 2-Step Verification and re-enable it if necessary:


Step 1

Select "Security" from the drop-down menu.


Step 2

Click on "2-Step Verification".


Step 3

Click on "Turn Off".


Step 4

Click "Turn Off" to confirm that you wish to turn off the 2-Step Verification.

Important: If you select the "Delete my saved second step devices" then devices you currently have registered to generate a verification code will be deleted. You will have to add them again if you enable 2-Step Verification in the future. If you leave the checkbox unchecked then information about the devices is retained and you can re-add all of them with a simple click if you enable 2-Step verification again.


Re-enable 2-step verification

The following steps show how to enable 2-step Verification if you have saved the "second step devices" from Step 4.


Step 1

Click on "2-Step Verification".


Step 2

Select which saved devices you wish to restore. In our case we only have one: My Nexus. Then click Restore.


Step 3

Click "Restore", to confirm the restoration. 2-Step Verification is now enabled and you can use the same devices as before to generate verification codes.
