Today, we’re unveiling a new feature that can help keep your Tumblr account secure: backup codes!
You can use these codes to get back into your Tumblr account if you don’t have access to your phone. Here’s how to get them on desktop web:
- Head to your Account Settings.
- In the Security section, click on the “Generate backup codes” button (note that you’ll need to have two-factor authentication enabled in order to see this option).
- Enter your account password when prompted.
- Blammo: you’ll see 10 backup codes.
These backup codes can be used whenever you’re prompted to enter a TFA code. Store them in the safest of places. They’re private, just like your password. Just keep in mind that each backup code can only be used once. If you use all 10, simply generate more the same way you generated this bunch.
