Is there not anyone that could help with the 2 factor authentication issue I am having?
I just read that if it is a free account just get it deleted to solve not being able to log into account.
Please HELP!!! I like using teamviewer for my personal use.
I have just tried to log into my account online, but as I've changed my phone, I couldn't generate a security code. I have the recovery code, but when I tried to use that at https://login.teamviewer.com/LogOn#deactivate-tfa it just said 'Internal server error'.
I tried to change my password in case I had mistyped it when I set up the account, but it just took me back to the screen asking for a security code. I need to be able to regain access to that account (not this one, which I have just set up to access the community forum), as I have locked down access to a relative's computer.
Does this mean I need to get the account deleted, and if so, can I set it up again so that I can access her computer without having to start again at her end?
Thanks in advance for your help.
I am still logged into and have access to my TeamViewer account on one computer. My phone was damaged and had to be replaced and my 2-factor codes didnt restore from the backup due to new device. Is there a way to diable two-factor without needing one of the 2fa codes, when i have an active session on my mac?
Hi there, I am a dumb person.
I wiped my phone before selling it and i forgot that I had the 2FA activated for TeamViewer...
So now I can't log-in to my old TeamViewer account and I can't find the recovery code...
I created a new account (this) and now I'd like to get the old one deleted.
I wrote a private message to @JeanK: is there anything else I should do?
Theres no mods here.... Just make a new account. I've been asking for months. On the blue moon off chance a mod shows up. They respond the the most recent message and that is about the extent of their help. I am sure they bend over backward for you the moment you spend $900 on 1 seat.
Can I ask for some assistance in deleting my old account that I'm locked out of because 2FA reset and recovery codes lost/not working?
What is the procedure for that?
Thank you for posting.
I am sending a private message to you for following up on this issue.
Please read a instruction in the message when you have time so that I can assist you.
As many others have done, I wiped my phone and am attempting to setup the 2FA authentication with TeamViewer. I am finding that I need a 16 digit recovery code and I have no idea where this is. At this point, it sounds like my account needs to be recreated. Please let me know what the next step are.
How do I get my account deleted? I replaced my phone, and my recovery key is not working to access my account .
I saw the posts to message a moderator, but when I go to the moderator and click send message, I am taken a screen that says to search first, and give no option to message.
Is this because I am not logged in? I can't login because of 2FA, so if login is required to post a message, this is a bad system for getting an account deleted.
Thank you for posting.

That is why community moderators are here for supporting everone.
So I am sending a private massage to you for following up.
Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat. I've purchased a new phone and wiped my old one. Now, I don't have access to my 2FA via Google Authenticator. I seem to have misplaced my recovery codes as well :( Can anyone help?
Thanks for your post.
Did you already receive the message from our colleagues to delete your account? Can you please send a private message with your email address you want to create the TeamViewer account?
Have a great day and best,
I too have the same issue, lost access to my original account and lost the recovery code
I have been using teamview personal, and two factor authentication. Somehow I have locked myself out, and can't get past the reset my password, or google authenticate. And can't use the 16 digit key either. I would like to remove my email and or get this issue resolved and have a moderator contact me.
Also can't login with my regular email as it keeps prompting me for items that are not working to get back in to manage my account.
Thanks for your posts.
Can you please send me a private message with the affected email addresses?
Thanks in advance :)
The email account effected is [email removed]
If I can get access again and just leave the 3 pc's that are on the account that would be great but at this time I can't login without the codes that are not working. So maybe the best bet is to delete the account via the email. And then I can start fresh and set up the above email again with the 3 pc's
thanks for your assistance.
Can you please send the email address via private message?
Thanks in advance Ken and have a nice day :)
Hello, I am not receiving 2FA codes to my phone and therefore cannot log in. This is a new account I created in order to write this message, but my primary account uses the same email address as this one minus the "+tv" part. Thanks.
I have enabled 2FA and I am asked to enter the security code for a new installation of teamviewer on my recently formatted home PC. The authenticator app is Google's but when I enter the six digits I get a message saying that the code is not correct. I have gone through the steps indicated (syncing etc. but I still get the same message. I am still looking for the recovery code but I can't seem to be able to find it.
Is there any way around this?

Thank you for your post.
Currently it is only possible to remove the 2FA by deleting the account. Can you please send me in a PM the affected email address? Then I'll open up a ticket for you.
For further questions, please contact us again.
Thank you for your prompt reply..
Affected Email address : [personal information removed by moderator]
But once the mentioned above account is deleted I can able to create account with same email address
Please let me know
I have a free account, and my wife did a force restore of my phone, so my recovery codes and the otp seed are now invalid, and I can't login to the forum with that account, because of 2FA.
Please let me know what I need to do to get that fixed either way..
As far i remember there is not workaround in this, unless you kept backup code when you first activated 2FA...
If not, then you have to delete your account and make new one.
For feature note, you can use Authy (i have an iphone) that keeps the token for 2FA encrypted in their server and even if you change phone or make a restore, you ALWAYS have access to 2FA in any app you use with 2FA... :)
I lost security and recovery code when i activated two step authecation after wiping my iphone. I was wondering if its possible to take the two step auethcation off my account.
I just bought a new phone and my icloud did not back up google authinticator so i need my account reset
Is there a moderator willing to help me please? I've lost access to my teamviewer account due to a phone crash. I still remember my password to login but it stopt their.
Please PM me and I'll send you te details of my account (not this once, since I cant create an account, still needs 2FA...).
Thanks in advance!
