To protect your account, Flume provides full support for Instagram's Two-Factor Authentication. Whenever you or someone attempts to log in as you, an SMS verification code is sent to your phone to authorize the log in attempt.
Enabling/Disabling Two-Factor Authentication
To enable/disable Two-Factor Authentication:
- When viewing your Profile, select the Two-Factor Authentication item under the Settings button in the title bar. Click the enable button and follow the prompts to verify your phone number.
Request Backup Codes
If you are unable to access your phone, or receive SMS verification codes, you can use backup codes to gain access to your account. These codes are not specific to Flume and will be necessary should you try to log in from any new device.
To request your backup codes:
- When viewing your Profile, select the Two-Factor Authentication item under the Settings button in the title bar. Click Get Backup Codes to see your backup codes. These codes can be copied and pasted into a secure document.
