Enable two-step authentication using a mobile app
How do I set up two-step authentication using a mobile app, like Google Authenticator or Authenticator Plus?
- Go to your user profile.
- Click Add under the Two-step authentication section.
- Select Add Google Authenticator. You will be asked to scan the barcode on your screen with your mobile device’s camera.
- Confirm the code that is shown on your device to finish the setup.
- Write down the emergency back-up code shown and store it in a safe place.
The setup process is then complete. Going forward, Stripe will request a code if you log in from a new device, as well as periodically to make sure it’s still secure.
Important: These codes are specific to that particular device and cannot be transferred. If you are going to switch to a new phone or wipe your phone, you’ll need to disable two-step authentication before you do so, then re-enable it using your new phone.
