Coming Soon: Two-Step Verification

We have exciting news about 2FA – it’s coming to a device near you!

Our development team has finished the highly requested Two-Step Verification feature and it’s slowly being rolled out to YNABers everywhere. If you don’t see it just yet, hold tight! Only a small number of users currently have the feature - this way our team can be certain there aren’t any show-stopping issues. We’re increasing that number as things go well, so everyone can expect to have access within the next few weeks.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask here or reach out to our support team if your questions are more personal than you’d like to share. If you already have access to this feature, feel free to leave your feedback below! :)

    • Hi RIP_MSMoney !

      Great question! You'll need to download an authenticator to use 2FA. If you’re using YNAB with your partner, we encourage both of you to install a verification app to quickly log in. We have steps on how to do that together in our Two-Step Verification guide, which I forgot to link previously - sorry about that! 😅

    • Hi louisw ! We recommend Authy or Google Authenticator for ease of use. You can use your preferred option!

      Nicole So I presume that Microsoft will work as well?

    • bobbucy Those are the two we mention in the documentation, and that I have personally used and tested. I can't speak to Microsoft Authenticator, but I'd love to hear how it goes!
