Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of security to your account. 

Follow the steps below to add two-factor authentication to your 123paystubs account:

  • Sign in to your 123PayStubs account.
  • From the dashboard, click the Profile icon in the top right corner of the screen and choose My Account.

  • Click Two factor Authentication

  • You will need to install one of the following authenticator apps on your mobile device. 
  1. Google Authenticator
  2. Authy by Twilio
  3. Microsoft Authenticator
  4. 2FA Authenticator
  5. LastPass by GoTo
  • Once you install the app, we recommend that you verify the phone number associated with your 123PayStubs account. This way, if you lose the device where you receive your authentication codes, you will be able to access your account safely. Follow these steps to verify your phone number: 
  1. Enter a valid phone number and click the Send One Time Access Code button. The One Time Access code will be sent to your phone number.
  2. When you receive the One Time Access Code, enter it and click ‘Verify’. 
  • After you successfully verify your phone number, proceed to scan the QR code using the authenticator app on your mobile device. If you are unable to scan the code, enter the details provided in the authenticator app. 
  • After adding the account details, you should enter the 6-digit verification code from your authenticator app to activate two-factor authentication. 

After enabling 2FA, you will be automatically signed out of your 123PayStubs account, and you need to sign back in. When you attempt to sign in again, you will be prompted to provide two forms of identification. The first identification form is your regular sign-in email address and password, and the second form is a randomly generated 6-digit code displayed by the authentication app.
