About multi-factor authentication recovery codes

If you enabled multi-factor authentication for your account login, you were presented with several recovery codes as part of the multi-factor authentication setup.

We provide recovery codes that you can use to log into your ActiveCampaign account. You will need to use these codes if your mobile device is lost, stolen, or damaged.

About recovery codes

Each recovery code presented to you during the initial multi-factor authentication set up can only be used once. If you run out of recovery codes to use, you can reset them to create a new list of codes to use.

If you are unable to access your recovery codes, please contact your account admin so they can reset them for you. 

If you are an admin and are locked out of your account, contact our Support Team and they can help you regain access to your account.
