Two-Factor Authentication On Your Savers Portal

We’re Glad You Asked! 

You can select your preferred method to receive security codes:

Authentication App

Use the Google Authenticator app or Microsoft Authenticator app to receive codes. You can receive codes without internet or mobile service. 

Text Message

Set up your phone number to receive text messages with authentication codes. 

Note: Setting up both authentication methods is strongly recommended. 

In the event your authentication app gets deleted, your mobile device is lost, or your mobile phone number changes, you will have another way of authenticating in order to access your account.
