How do I activate my SMS Authentication settings?

SMS Authenticator, along with your "Security PIN" and Google Authenticator is a great way to add extra security to your account. This is why we recommend adding it as a part of your account security. To activate your SMS settings, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "Security" from the "My Info" drop-down menu.
  3. Scroll down to the "Two-Factor Authentication" section and click on "Manage Two-Factor Authentication" button on the right.
  4. Unlock your account on the pop-up page using your Security PIN.
  5. Click on the plus icon before SMS, and enter your cellphone number in the SMS pop up page(select the country code in the first box dropdown, fill in your phone number in the second box), and click "Set SMS Phone Number" button to save your cellphone number.
  6. Next, check the verify box. and wait for it to show as success. Click the "Get SMS Token" button to request a token. A 6-digit code will be sent to the cellphone number you have entered.
  7. Enter the SMS code in the "Enter Token" box.
  8. Click "Enable SMS" button to save your changes. You are not able to enable SMS is an incorrect code is provided.

If the correct test code is entered, your SMS settings will be saved for your account.

NOTE: Activating your SMS settings requires us to send at least 1 text message to your cellphone. Thus, carrier fees may apply when activating your SMS settings.
