2-Step Login

Lock down your Buffer account and protect your information

What is 2-Step Login?

2-Step Login, adds an extra layer of security for your Buffer account. Whenever you log in to your account, after entering your username and password, you will be asked for a second authentication code that was sent to your mobile phone via text or free mobile app.

By adding a second step to the login process, we can ensure that anyone logging into your account is actually you! Malicious attackers will not only need your password, but also access to your mobile device, in order to log in to your Buffer account.

How it works

When you log into your Buffer account, you will be asked for your normal username and password. If you sign in with Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn, we will first verify your identity. After the first verification is succesful, we will send a six-digit verification code to your mobile phone via text or mobile app. You will be required to enter this verification code in order to log in.

There are currently two ways to generate 2-step codes on your mobile device: via text message or with the Google Authenticator app (iOS and Android). You can configure these settings from your Account and Password settings.
