Recover two-factor authentication#
If you lose access to your authentication app, use the recovery codes you generated and stored when you set up two-factor authentication to recover access, and to complete sign-in.
If you cannot access the device you use to verify your second authentication factor, or if you accidentally removed EclecticIQ Intelligence Center account from the authentication app, you will not be able to successfully sign in to EclecticIQ Intelligence Center with two-factor authentication.
When you set up two-factor authentication for your user account, you were prompted to store 10 recovery codes.
You need them now.

Click Use recovery code.
If the recovery code is valid, you will be signed in.
