Added 2FA recovery and backup code support for the Developer Dashboard
Following our latest feature release of the 2FA security enhancement, we’re pleased to announce the availability of recovery or backup code support. Please see the authentication flow below:
Enabling 2FA with a backup code
When you enable 2FA using the same method as before, a backup code will be generated automatically for you.
Please click on the copy button and store the backup code somewhere safe.
Regenerating the backup code
In case you’ve lost your backup code or enabled 2FA before we rolled out the feature, you can still re-generate it as long as you have your 2FA authenticator device with you.
From the Profile page, simply click on the ‘generate a backup code’ link and follow the on-screen instructions.
It will ask for the authenticator code.
Upon entering a valid code, you will be given a new backup code. Please note that the old backup code will stop working as soon as you generate a new one.
