How do you get the 2FA backup codes?

Backup codes are a number of one-time codes you can generate specifically for your FinJingSims user when you have 2FA enabled. You need the backup codes in case you want to login to your FinJingSims website and cannot access the primary one-time code generator.

What are backup codes?

Backup codes are a number of one-time codes you can generate specifically for your FinJingSims user when you have 2FA enabled. You need the backup codes in case you want to login to your FinJingSims website and cannot access the primary one-time code generator.

How do you get the 2FA backup codes?

When you setup 2FA for your FinJingSims user the wizard gives you the option to generate 10 backup codes.

If you did not generate them through the wizard, you can still generate them from your My Account page > Account details. Click the button Generate backup codes in the 2FA Settings section

When the backup codes are generated, download the text file and save it in a secure location. You can also print the codes.

How do you use the backup codes?

To login to your FinJingSims website you need the username, password and the one-time code. If you cannot generate the one-time code via the normal primary means, click on use a backup code when asked for the two-factor authentication code. The link is highlighted in the below screenshot.Enter one of your backup codes and you will login to your FinJingSims website.

How many backup codes can you have, or have left?

Backup codes are also one-time codes. So once a code is used, it cannot be used again. By default the plugin creates ten backup codes for every user. You can see how many backup codes you have left under the 2FA settings section in your My Account page > Account details.

Do not wait until you have just one backup code left. Don’t risk getting locked out. Create 10 new backup codes whenever you have less than 2 unused backup codes left.
