Question

The 2FA option does not display in Manage Account settings

The 2FA option does not display under ‘Manage Account’.

All I see is:

Name
Sign-in method
Email subscriptions
Your teams
Deactivate account

I don’t understand what the issue is. I’ve searched all other possible settings with no luck. Is this a problem for anyone else?

Hello, @sleet

To enable 2FA for your DigitalOcean account, log in to the control panel.

Note: If you’re using a team, be sure to switch to your personal account first. For more information on teams, see DigitalOcean Teams

In the main navigation, under the Account heading, click Security. You can also click any of the control panel reminders to enable 2FA.

When you enable 2FA, you’ll then need to choose your second factor and choose a backup method. After 2FA is enabled, you can return to the Security page to modify your choices, generate new backup codes, or disable 2FA.

You can also check our docs here:

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

or directly access the Enabling Two-Factor Authentication link:

Hope that this helps!

Alex
