How can I enable/disable Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your Namecheap account in addition to your username and password by requiring access to the smartphone or U2F device. When Two-Factor Authentication is enabled, your account cannot be accessed by anyone unauthorized by you, even if they have stolen your password.

Your cPanel account can be also secured with 2FA.

Two-Factor Authentication is an option we offer to our customers at no extra charge.

To enable Two-Factor Authentication for the Namecheap account, please follow the steps below:

  • Sign in to your Namecheap account.

  • Select Profile from the left >> choose Security.

  • In the Access section, you will see Two-Factor Authentication. Click the Manage button to proceed with the feature enabling:

    PLEASE NOTE: It is not possible to use several 2FA methods simultaneously.



    Should you want to disable the feature at all, go to Profile >> Security >> Two-Factor Authentication >> Manage and set it to OFF:
