No backup codes for 2FA?

Hi,

 

Some time ago, it was enabled the option to activate 2FA on My Kaspersky website in order to have a better protection for the account.

 

But I noticed that there isn’t any section where I can create backup codes if I both loose my SIM card and my smartphone, or even worse, if someone stole my phone with my SIM. If something like this happens, I could loose access to My Kaspersky.

 

Why isn’t possible to create backup codes? I think that should be added as soon as possible.

 

Thanks

@nicos18 Welcome.  Didn’t you install your 2FA application on another device which should offer you the option to modify your mobile number ?

 

Actually, I use Enpass as 2FA app method, but the point is another.

 

I think that there must be the option to create backup code(s) to access the account in case something goes wrong.

Hello there, I was about to create a new topic, but I’ve found this one and it’s exactly what I was worried about.

Today I wanted to test the my kaspersky site to find my phone, but then the surprise: you must enter a code sent to your phone to sign in!!! Are you kidding me, Kaspersky? I’ve lost my phone and I can’t use the ‘Find my phone’ function because of this nonsense two factor authentication? And there is no other option to sign in like sending a code to your mail or a backup code! This is really serious and needs to be fixed as soon as possible 😡😡😡.
