Two-Step Verification: Start Here

Two-Step Verification is a service that provides an added layer of protection for your PennKey and Google accounts. After you log in with your username and password, you'll be prompted to verify your identity -- the second step -- using a device in your possession such as a mobile phone or key fob.

Make sure you have the following before you start this task: 

  • an active account (e.g. PennKey, Google)
  • administrative access to your smartphone (if you plan to install the recommended smartphone apps)

Note: Two-Step Methods
