Hi @cpeters5,

You should be able to generate more backup codes from your Control Panel –> Click on your profile icon in the right top corner –> Manage Account —> Two Factor Authentication.

From there you can regenerate more backup codes.

Additionally, I’ll urge you to check the following documentation about 2FA:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/accounts/security/2fa/

  • @KFSys no such option is present. Can you please show a screenshot of where it’s possible to regenerate backup codes? Because it seems impossible at present.

    Is the only possibility to disable 2FA to generate new backup codes?
