    Hi @luckycat 

    Thanks for your post.

    The recovery code has been prompted to you while creating the 2FA within the Management Console.

    If you are unsure whether you saved it properly, you can access the code in your Management Console via --> Edit profile --> General --> View Recovery Code. Please keep in mind: You need your security code to view the recovery code!

    Please find more information here: Two factor authentication - Activation and Deactivation | Recovery code

    Thanks and best,

    Esther
