Secure your Adobe account with two-step verification

Learn how to make your Adobe account more secure by setting up two-step verification. Also learn how to revoke access to any third-party apps.

What is two-step verification?

Two-step verification is an additional authentication method that you can use for your Adobe account to make it more secure. You can use the Adobe Account Access app to sign in securely or receive sign-in verification codes by email or text message. 

Two-step verification for your Adobe account is optional but recommended. If we detect an unusual login, we may email you a code to verify your identity even if you aren’t enrolled in two-step verification.

How to turn on two-step verification

  1. In the Two-step verification section, use the toggle to enable any of the following methods of authentication:

    • Sign in with Adobe Account Access app: Use this option to sign in securely without a password. Enabling this app also enables email and phone as your backup authentication methods.
    • Verify with email: If you enable this option, Adobe sends you a code on your mail when you sign in. Enabling this option also enables your phone as a backup method of authentication automatically (if it's already added). 
    • Verify with text messages (SMS): If you enable this option, Adobe sends you a code on your phone when you sign in. (You may need to first add a phone number.) Enabling this option enables your email as a backup method of authentication.
    Activate two-step verification section

      If you've already provided information for all authentication methods, you are prompted to enable all methods at the same time.

  2. Follow the onscreen instructions to enable your preferred methods of authentication.

    Once these authentication methods are enabled, you receive an onscreen message and an email, confirming that two-step verification has been activated.
