Setting up two-step verification

In addition to signing in with your FileMaker ID user name and password, you can further protect your FileMaker ID account by entering a unique verification code each time you sign in to FileMaker ID. The verification code is sent to the phone number you provide. By using this two-step verification process, both your password and a verification code are needed to sign in to your account.

If you didn’t set up two-step verification when you signed up for a FileMaker ID account, you can do so after you’ve created an account.
