Re: 2 factor authenticator lost

I forgot my two factor authentication recovery key and my old phone that had the info has been wiped. After reading through your forums it looks like you just need to delete my account in order for me to use it again. Is this something you can assist with? The account I'm writing this with is just a temporary account so I can post on your forum. I got a repsone from a user named Bernd but he just gave me the response below:

If you are a paid customer, contact support directly. If you are on a free account, reach out ot one of the forum Mods and they will work with you to get your account deleted.

This is a free account so I believe this is my only option. If you could assist with this I would be GREATLY appreciative!!!

Lost 2FA

Hi, I did something dumb, and accidentally deleted the 2FA for teamviewer from my auth app.  I then started panicking and searching for the removal key, and i have no idea where it is :(

I've heard it's not exactly easy to fix this problem.. but i've also seen posts here indicating i should make a topic and request help sorting this out.

Re: 2 factor authenticator lost

Hi,

I too have the same problem (no access to the 2FA code and can't find the recovery code), although I am still logged in on one PC.

Any help to disable the 2FA so that I can set it up again would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Simon

Re: 2 factor authenticator lost

Free account no solutions. Have to change your account.
If you have a bought account, enter in contact with teamviewer support. They help you very quick.

2FA and locked out

I am trying to delete or recover my account which is requesting a forced password reset.  After I recieve the change password email and enter a new password, it asks for my 2FA code.  I no longer have this.  From what I read, it was recommended I delete my account, but i cant since my account is locked out.

What are my next steps?

lost authenicator & do not have code to remove it

Hello,

I got a new phone and wiped my old one, then realized the my authicator app didnt carry over the codes for Teamviewer, so im now locked out of my account. 

From reseaching this issue on these forums, it sounds like Teamviewer support needs to delete my account? So i can then set it up again? 

If thats the case please let me know who to PM with my account details. 

 

Thanks

2FA lost and no recovery code

Hi, 

It's been a while since I logged in, and my 2FA is not working anymore. I used to have this on a "lastpass" auth app, but the codes aren't working even if its a auth for teamviewer as it shows. 

Can you delete my account? (not this email on forum), so i can start over?

Re: 2FA lost and no recovery code

They messaged me that they won’t help because it’s a free account. Very annoying that they don’t have an automated recovery like every other company in the world. Lost codes for Snapchat, Facebook, Amazon, google, Instagram and a few others. They all were easily fixed with a quick sms message.

Re: lost recovery code and wiped phone

I'm thinking that there can be a solution to solve this problem. As google, facebook and other application there is the possibility to receive a code in other way (not only the authenticator), for example an sms, an email or other. So maybe the better way to solve the problem is to implement this alternatives.

Re: lost recovery code and wiped phone

I've sent a PM to Jonathan, posted a new topic, and replied here.  What does it take to get any sort of response from anyone at TeamViewer?

At this point its looking like less trouble to just switch to AnyDesk or some other alternative.

Lost Phone(2FA App) and Recovery Key

Hi.  Unfortunately, I have lost my phone and cannot locate my 2FA recovery key on my primary account, so I cannot login directly or login to the forums to ask for help.  Is there any way to request deletion of the account, so that I can create a new one.  Thanks.

Lost 2FA Recovery code

Hello,

A friend of mine got a new phone and thought he'd saved his 2FA recovery code to ultimately get google authenticator setup on the new phone.  Turns out he either didn't save it or doesn't remember where it was saved.
I'd seen via other people's posts that he'd have to make a post here and wait for one of the mods to help him.  Unfortunately he can't even log in here to post without his 2FA code.
What ways could he contact someone to recover his account?

Re: lost recovery code and wiped phone

Same situation here. I managed to lose access to my previous account even if I'm still logged in on my machine.

I tried messaging Jonathan as well but, I'm guessing a lot of us have had that idea so messaging him is now disabled.

Moderator - Please delete my account - 2 factor auth issue with no recovery code

Title says it all, I just need a moderator to delete my account because my Google 2 factor authentication was lost when my phone was reset, and I can not find any evidence of getting a recovery code from Team Viewer. I need my account deleted, so I can re-create it. FYI - This is not the account I need deleted, the one I need deleted I cannot post from because I am locked out of it. If you PM me I will give you the email address associated with the account that needs deleted.

lost recovery code and authenticator

I need a moderator to message me because I need help after losing ym authenticator and recovery code.  

If I can get my account back that would be great.  If not I need to at least have my primary email address deleted from TeamViewer so that I can reregister it to use again.
