How do I sign in with two-factor authentication?

After you enable two-factor authentication (2FA), you’ll be required to enter a one-time verification code every time you sign in. 

Sign in with a one-time code

  1. On the sign-in page, enter your username and password and click Sign in. You’ll be prompted to enter a one-time code.
  2. Open the authenticator app on your mobile device and find the code for your JetBrains Account.
  3. On the sign-in page, enter the 6-digit code you see in the app, and click Verify.
  4. That’s it! You are now signed in.

Sign in with a recovery code

If you lose access to your mobile device, use one of your recovery codes instead of the one-time verification code.

If you've lost access to your mobile device and you don't have your recovery codes at hand, see What if I get locked out of my account?

Sign in to older versions of JetBrains products

Older versions of JetBrains products may not support 2FA and will not prompt you to enter the one-time verification code when signing in.


To sign in and activate such products, use a temporary app password. To learn more, see How do I activate older JetBrains products that don't support two-factor authentication?
