When will I be required to enter my SMS Authentication code?

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. You will be required to enter your SMS Authentication code at the following places:

Login/Unlock Your Account:

  1. If you are not using Google Authenticator or Security Key, you will be asked to enter an SMS code for logging in.
  2. If you have set 3 methods at the same time, you will be asked to enter an SMS code when you set SMS setting as default. Unlocking your account is required for certain account functions such as editing your account info and unlocking your domains.
You could set "Verify All Enabled" or "Verify Only Default" when you want to use them all or only use the default setting for unlocking the account.
  • Verify All Enabled: When using Google Authentication, SMS Authentication and Security Key, you will need to enter all of them along with your "Security PIN" to unlock your account.
  • Verify Only Default: You will only be asked to enter the one that was set as the Default Authentication method, when you are logging into or unlocking account.
