Q. How do I remove or replace my two-factor device?

If you have a two-factor device configured and you wish to remove it (for example, to change to a new device):

  1. Go to the Profile tab in our member interface.
  2. In the "Details" box, on the "Two-Factor Security" line, select the "Remove" button.
  3. Enter your password and two consecutive codes from your two-factor device (or two recovery codes).

Once the old one is removed, you can add the new device.

If you want to support two-factor authentication with more than one device at a time, we suggest using a program like 1Password that can securely distribute your 2FA configuration to multiple devices. It is also possible to configure multiple devices at once with the QR code, but that's much harder to keep track of.
