How do I enable two-factor authentication (2FA)?

Enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) to your Missive account will add an extra layer of protection to your data.

For users connecting via OAuth, please read this tutorial for people who sign in with Google or this other for people who sign in with Apple.

To activate 2FA on your regular Missive account, you will need to get an authentication app such as Authy or Google Authenticator.

Once you have downloaded one of the apps, please follow these steps:

  1. Open your Settings
  2. Go to Login & Security
  3. Enter your account password
  4. Click on Enable two-factor authentication
  5. With the previously downloaded authentication app, scan the QR code
  6. Enter the 6-code digit in Missive.
