Under what circumstances will Two-Factor Authentication activate?

For Two-Factor Authentication, you will only be challenged through the following scenarios:
  • Suspicious logins 
  • Updating your phone number or email address in-app
For suspicious logins, we require you to verify 2FA and to reset your login password when challenged since the security of your account is of the utmost importance. This process cannot be skipped and is a requirement to regain access to your account. 
Lastly, when updating the phone number or email address in-app we would simply need to confirm the Two-Factor Authentication code for setup purposes.
