Get instructions on entering a sign-in code in addition to your Adobe ID password while signing in to your account.

To strengthen the security of your account, you can set up 2-Step Verification as explained in Use 2-Step Verification to strengthen account security. Once you set up 2-Step Verification, you are required to enter a sign-in code in addition to your Adobe ID password.

You can receive the sign-in code on your mobile number or on your email address. 


Even if you have not set up 2-Step verification, Adobe can require more verification for sign-in attempts that do not conform to patterns of your normal usage. For example, if there is a sign-in attempt from a browser or a device that you have not used before, more verification can be required to ensure that only you can access your account.
