Two-step verification may be unavailable in your region. For more details, see the My Kaspersky help.

Two-step verification prevents bad guys from signing in to your My Kaspersky account even if they know your password. To verify your identity, you will receive a unique security code in one of the following ways:

  • Via an SMS. We use the phone number you save on My Kaspersky. This means that both your password and your phone are needed to sign in to your account.
  • Via an authenticator app. You first need to set up two-step verification via your mobile phone number for the authenticator app feature to be available.

You can turn on two-step verification on My Kaspersky. If you change your phone number, you can update it on My Kaspersky. If you are already signed in to your account on a device, nothing will change for you. For detailed instructions, see the My Kaspersky Help.

The security code is valid for a short period. If it expires, request another security code.
