Common Problems

  • I have two accounts, I want to use the same Authenticator for both
  • I would like to use my authenticator for my second account but I don't know how

The Mobile Authenticator app can be attached to up to three different accounts.

After you added the Authenticator to the first account: 

  1. Log in to the Account Settings of your second account
  2. Go to Security > Set up Authenticator (or Account Overview > Add Authenticator)
  3. Skip the download because you already have the app on your phone
  4. Select "Other Options: Set up a mobile authenticator"
  5. Enter the security code sent to your email
  6. Enter the serial number found on your Authenticator App

You can use the same steps to add the same Authenticator serial number to a third account.
