What to do if we don't remember what 2FA do we use?

Hi there,

I'm using 1Password app for many years. Today, I deleted and reinstalled the application and then realized it asked for a 2FA code. I have set up a 2FA security earlier, but I can't remember which application I did it through. Hence, I am currently unable to access my 1Password account at all.

Note: I have the Emergency Kit.

1Password Version: 7.6.2
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: iOS
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Hi @odo! Welcome to the forum!

    As a first quick attempt, can you please try the following and see if it helps? Go to a browser where you've signed into 1Password before (it's important that you try this on a known browser, even on a different device) and sign in to your account on 1Password.com. Then, click your name in the top right and choose My Profile. Finally, click More Actions > Manage Two-Factor Authentication > Turn Off Two-Factor Authentication

    If you have added your 1Password account to a Mac or another iOS device and you can sign into your 1Password account on that device you can turn off 2FA there -

    Open and unlock 1Password on Mac.
    Select 1Password > Preferences > Accounts. Click your account, then click Turn Off Two-Factor Authentication.

    Open and unlock 1Password on iOS device.
    Tap Settings > 1Password Accounts. Tap your account, then tap Turn Off Two-Factor Authentication.

    Please be sure you have the latest version of the apps for this :+1:

  • I’m sorry. But there isn’t any device that I’ve signed in except for my phone. So, as I said, I can’t login my account on my device because of I can’t remember what 2FA app I use.
