How to enable or disable the 2 Factor Authentication every time I sign into my Autodesk Account?


Two-step verification adds an extra layer of security by requiring a security code when you sign in to any Autodesk account. When this setting is enabled, in addition to your email and password, you will need to enter a verification code received on your authenticator app / mobile device.

2. Sign in to your account at profile.autodesk.com/security.

3. Click Set up under Set up 2-step verification.


4. Enter your email and password and click Continue.

5. Scan the QR code using your authenticator app and click Continue.


5. Enter the verification code generated from the authenticator app, and click Continue.


6. Click Done in the verification message to complete the process.
7. The next time you sign in, you must enter the verification code from the authenticator app and your email and password.
