2-Step Verification

The 2-Step Verification helps add an extra layer of security for your Newegg account by asking you to enter a unique security code in addition to your password on computers/devices that you haven’t selected as being safe.

Enable 2-Step Verification:

    1. In your Account, select Account Settings under Manage account.
    2. Click Enable to the right of “2-Step Verification”.
    3. Choose where your code will be sent: email address, phone number, or Authenticator App(QR code generator). Then select “SEND CODE”.
        • You are required to input a primary and backup method.
        • You cannot enable/disable this on mobile, but can add your mobile device to the safe device list during checkout on our mobile site.
    4. On the last step, you can select to not require verification codes to be sent on the device you are using. Once you select the “TURN ON 2-STEP VERIFICATION’ button, the 2-Step Verification will be activated on your account.

Disabling 2-Step Verification:

Select Disable in your “Account Settings” under “Manage account”.
