If you no longer want to use two-step verification, you can disable it, as described in this section.

Disabling two-step verification will decrease the security of your account. We strongly recommend that you continue using two-step verification.

If you set up two-step verification by SMS, you can disable two-step verification. If you set up two-step verification by an authenticator app, you can disable the use of the app or completely disable two-step verification.

To disable the use of an authenticator app:

  1. In Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, click the link containing your account name, and then select Manage user account.

    The User account settings window opens.

  2. Select the Two-step verification section.
  3. Under Authenticator app, click the Disable the use of the authenticator app link.
  4. Under Enter your current password, specify the password of your account in Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, and then click the Continue button.

The use of an authenticator app is disabled. The settings of two-step verification by an authenticator app are deleted. You can now delete accounts in your authenticator apps.

Later, you can set up two-step verification by an authenticator app again.

To completely disable two-step verification:

  1. In Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, click the link containing your account name, and then select Manage user account.

    The User account settings window opens.

  2. Select the Two-step verification section.
  3. Under Phone number, click the Disable two-step verification link.
  4. Under Enter your current password, specify the password of your account in Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, and then click the Continue button.
