How to enable Two Step Verification

The Two Step Verification feature serves as a powerful security enhancement for all Linksys cloud account users, offering an additional layer of protection. 

Once enabled on the Linksys app or LinksysSmartWiFi.com page, any unverified device seeking access to your Linksys cloud account will be required to enter a six-digit verification code delivered via email or SMS. To ensure a successful login, follow the instructions below.


Before you begin:

 
  • Make sure you have an existing Linksys cloud account with two-step verification enabled. 
  • If you selected both Email and Text message options as ways to receive the verification code, make sure you have access to that email address or phone number.
 

Directions

1. Launch the Linksys app.

2. Tap Manage Your Wi-Fi for iOS or Log in for Android™.
