Hello,

To log into Google on my PC, I need to enter a backup code; my phone says I have 10 unused ones - how to access them ?


Windows / Chrome 112.0.0.0

Hi,

To access your backup codes on your Android phone, open Settings > Google and select Manage your Google Account.

Go to Security > 2-Step Verification. Under Backup codes, select Get backup codes or Download your backup codes.

On iPhone, open the Gmail app and go to Menu > Settings > Your name > Manage your Google Account then follow the above steps.

Alternatively, access the My Account page from your web browser.

Thank you for that reply. I did eventually discover a path to the backup codes, similar to the one you outlined.
