Enable two-step authentication via text messaging
How do I set up two-step authentication using text messages?
To set up two-step authentication for your Stripe account using text messaging:
- Go to your user profile.
- Click Add under the Two-step authentication section.
- Select Add SMS. You will be asked to enter your phone number. Enter your phone number and click Send text.
- You will be texted a unique security code to confirm that we’ve got the right phone number. Note that it may take a minute or two to receive your security code.
- 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.
