What are recovery codes?

Recovery codes are random codes made up of letters and numbers that will serve users in case they need to reset their 2FA. These are given to the user once they establish their 2FA and should be kept in a safe but accessible place for future reference if necessary. For example: kayp-lz3p-ke5v-5j1h

 

What is an authenticator code?

The authentication code comprises six random numbers and is delivered by 2-step authentication applications. For example: 634977
