How do I set up two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to your Cloudflare account. We strongly recommend all Cloudflare users to take advantage of this feature when logging in to the Cloudflare dashboard.

To set up two-factor authentication:

1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard, click your username in the top right corner and select My Profile from the dropdown.

Configuring Authy

1. After clicking Authy in the My Profile page, an Enable Two-Factor Authentication pop-up appears instructing you to install the Authy app in your mobile phone. If you already have Authy, skip the installation.

2. In the Cloudflare dashboard, click Next. Another Enable Two-Factor Authentication pop-up appears.

3. Enter your country, mobile number, and Cloudflare password then, click Next.

4. In your mobile phone, open Authy and locate the new Cloudflare code.

5. Back in the Cloudflare dashboard, enter the code generated by Authy and click Save.

Two-factor authentication is now active for your Cloudflare account. The next time you log in to the Cloudflare dashboard, you will need to enter a two-factor authentication code from Authy. 

Note:

If you need to disable two-factor authentication at a later time, you can do so in the My Profile page of the Cloudflare dashboard. 

 

Configuring Google Authenticator

1. If you don't have Google Authenticator installed in your mobile device, follow these instructions.

2. In your mobile device, open Google Authenticator and select BEGIN SETUP then, select Scan barcode.

3. In the My Profile page of the Cloudflare dashboard, click Google Authenticator. A Set Up Two-Factor with Google Auth pop-up displays.

4. Back in Google Authenticator in your mobile device, scan the barcode displayed in the Cloudflare dashboard. A verification code now displays in your mobile device.

5. Back in the Cloudflare dashboard, enter the code and click Verify code.

Two-factor authentication is now active for your Cloudflare account. The next time you log in to the Cloudflare dashboard, you will need to enter a two-factor authentication code from Google Authenticator. 

Note:

If you need to disable two-factor authentication at a later time, you can do so in the My Profile page of the Cloudflare dashboard.
