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:
