What is Adobe Account Access?

Adobe Account Access is a mobile app that simplifies signing in to your Adobe apps and account. It uses your phone to verify your identity so you don't need to enter your Adobe password when signing in. When you sign in to Adobe, the app prompts you to approve the sign-in on your phone. Once you tap, it sends the verification back to Adobe to complete your sign-in.
