Welcome to Adobe!
An Adobe ID is your ticket to a secure and personalized experience with Adobe apps and services. Your purchases, membership, updates, and trials of Adobe apps and services are all managed through your Adobe ID. You can also use your Adobe ID to register your products, track orders, contact Adobe Support, and participate in Adobe forums and events.
It's easy to remember your Adobe ID. It's the unique email address you first used when you started your membership, or purchased an Adobe app or service. If you used your social (Facebook or Google) account to create your Adobe ID account, your Adobe ID is the same as the email address associated with your social account.

2-step verification (also known as 2-factor authentication or 2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your account. With 2-step verification, while signing in, a verification code is required in addition to your Adobe ID account password. You can choose to receive this code on your mobile phone number or on the email address associated with your account.
You can also set up an authenticator app, such as Adobe Authenticator or Google Authenticator, to generate a verification code. Adobe Authenticator also supports push notification so you can simply approve the notification on your iOS or Android phone or your connected smartwatch to sign in.
2-step verification is optional, but is recommended for strengthening the security of your Adobe ID account. You can deactivate 2-step verification any time after you activate it.
To activate 2-step verification, you must provide a mobile phone number.
If a mobile phone number is not already associated with your account
If a mobile phone number is not already associated with your account, you are prompted to add a mobile phone number.
Enter your mobile number, and then click Next.
You do not have to enter dashes or spaces while entering your mobile phone number. The system adds dashes or spaces as required, depending on your country.
If a phone number is already associated with your account
If a phone number is already associated with your account, the number is displayed. You can change the number if necessary.
Verify that the number is correct, and then click Next.
If you change the number, the new number gets associated with you account, and the previous number is removed.
You are prompted to enter a verification code that is sent to your mobile phone. Check your mobile phone, and enter the verification code. Then, click Verify.
Did not receive the code? Wait for a few minutes as it can take some time for the text message to be delivered. If you still do not receive the code, click start over to generate the code again.
In this authentication system, in addition to using your Adobe credentials, you use a one-time password generated by an application on your device to sign in. Such applications are known as authenticator apps—for example, Adobe Authenticator, Google Authenticator, or other similar apps that generate a TOTP. For more information on TOTP, see this Wikipedia article.
Adobe Authenticator, in addition to generating a verification code, also sends a notification to your Android or iOS phone, and any connected smartwatch. You can accept the notification prompt to sign in to your account without having to type a verification code.
For more information, see Use Adobe Authenticator for 2-step verification.
Install an authenticator app (such as Adobe Authenticator or Google Authenticator) on your device.
If you do not see the Manage button, first set up 2-Step verification as explained in Enable 2-Step Verification.
Open your authenticator app.
- If you are using Adobe Authenticator, click Scan Code. After the barcode is scanned, enter the code to pair your Adobe id with your device.
- If you are using another app, add a new account/profile. The process depends on your authenticator app. For example, in the Google Authenticator app, tap the + button.
For more information on entering the code while signing in, and troubleshooting any issues, see 2-Step Verification: Keeping your account secure.
Some older products do not support 2-step verification through a verification code sent to your mobile phone or email address. To use 2-step verification for these products, you must use an authenticator app such as Adobe Authenticator or Google authenticator. For more information, see Use 2-step verification for older products.
2-Step Verification gets deactivated for your account. You are not prompted for a verification code while signing in.
You can reactivate 2-Step Verification any time as explained in Activate 2-Step Verification.
