How to enable 2FA for Grammarly
Want to follow this guide on your phone?
The best way to manage all your 2FA accounts is to use the Authy app. It enables you to have a single mobile app for all your 2FA accounts and you can sync them across multiple devices, even accessing them on the desktop. Install Authy on your device by searching for it in your device’s app store.
Important: If any sites prompt you to use Google Authenticator for two-factor authentication, note that you can always substitute the Authy 2FA app instead. Although they work in similar ways, Authy is more feature-rich and allows for multi-device syncing, cloud-backups, and easier account recovery should you change or lose your phone or device. Read more information on the features of Authy here.
When logged into your Grammarly account, click on the “Account” on the left-hand navigation column of your dashboard.
Under “Account Settings” click “Security”
You’ll notice “Two-Step Verification” is off – you must first turn it on to use Authy to protect your account.
To verify it’s you, you must enter your password, after which an email is sent to you with a 6 digit code.
You must then enter that code into the panel on the left, followed by entering your phone number, and confirming you have access to that phone by reentering a new code that is texted to you.
You now have two-step verification turned on. To enable your Authy app, you must click on the “set up alternative second steps” section under the security tab.
Grammarly will now present you with a QR code. To capture the QR code, launch Authy on your device.
Click ‘Add Account’ at the bottom of the screen.
You’ll be prompted to hold your phone up to your computer to ‘Scan QRCode’ and capture the QR code on the Grammarly dashboard.
Once the QR code is captured, Authy will display your Grammarly account.
You can also change the nickname you give the account right on the Authy app. When ready, click ‘Save’ and return to the Grammarly dashboard.
Go to the Grammarly account on your Authy app and make note of the changing 6 digit code.
Enter the code into this new field back on the Grammarly site.
Once you’ve done that, you will be notified that tw0-factor authentication is successful.
