Activate T-Mobile’s Two-Step Verification at Sign-In

Ask a question
T-Mobile offers two-step verification to help you keep your account safe by adding an extra layer of protection for your online login. Two-step verification will require you to pass an additional verification when singing in to your My T-Mobile account online. This could be a security question or an SMS code. Here is how to enable or disable 2-step verification from your My T-Mobile account online.

Turn On 2-Step Verification Online

To get started, go to the My T-Mobile website and enter your account credentials to access your account. Next, go to Profile, and select T-Mobile ID. Find 2-Step Verification and turn it On. Once you activate it, you will have to decide if you would like to use your security question or to receive a confirmation PIN via SMS.

N.B. Once activated for the first time, there is a 24-hour window before your account can be accessed. After that, you will be able to access your account using the 2-step verification protection.
