What is two-step verification?

Two-step verification (a.k.a. two-factor authentication, multi-factor authentication, or MFA) is a financial industry standard that requires you to provide additional verification after signing in. Usually, you'll get a verification code sent through a text message or automated phone call.

Any time you sign in to an existing Intuit Account on an unrecognized computer or device, we'll ask you to verify your identity first.

For an additional layer of security, you can turn on a second verification step each time you sign in with our two-step verification feature or the Google
Authenticator app (iOS or Android). We call this opt-in two-step verification.

If you opt out of this feature, we'll still ask you to verify the first time you sign in on an unrecognized device. Keep in mind, updating the phone number connected to your Intuit Account automatically turns off two-step authentication. You can turn it back on with your new number.
