Change the phone number for two-factor authentication

You can change the phone number you are using for SMS or voice call two-factor authentication (2FA) from Twilio Console. This guide walks you through the process.

Notice: 2FA can be enabled or disabled from the Settings pages in Console. For full details, see Enable two-factor authentication on your Twilio project.

  1. Access the User Settings page in Console.
  2. If the User Settings page is gray, you may need to re-authenticate. Click Authenticate to make changes at the bottom of the screen, and then verify your credentials again to continue.
