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 Two-Factor Authentication 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.
