Two way authenticator verify on myUSCIS website

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I need help to disable the authenticator code verify after I login to myuscis webpage.. I changed my phone and the authenticator app on new phone does not recognise the uscis website (the old phone is with my friend now and resetted). The solution to all this chaos would be to disable the authenticator from USCIS.. But I cannot open the settings without entering the code first.. How to DISABLE the extra AUTHENTICATOR VERIFY process from MyUscis?

 

In the screenshot below, I did reach out to their contact center but I get no reply

Hmm, my verification code always comes through email, you don't get that? If not, just make a myuscis account with another email address and add your case numbers there.

The egov and myuscis are separate, so you can't disable the 2nd factor authenticator from the other.

 

Your ONLY way forward now is to call the USCIS helpline and hopefully get through to someone in technical support. You could just create another account, but it's better to get your existing account working.

 

Quick note to everyone else: I've been hit with losing authenticator codes like this before when moving phones. The google authenticator app is terrible for not backing up any rotating codes in there. Your choices are either to get your codes via email as @C90 does or to invest in a password manager app like 1Password, LastPass etc that are cloud based and support these authenticator codes. As long as you keep access to the password app, you'll have access to all your sites.

Can we do that for USCIS? I mean technically its the same person with two accounts.

Yes, I did it. I had an account with 1 email address, but I couldn't get in. My password was fine, but it just kept locking me out constantly. I created an account with another email address and that worked. Use that account ever since.

 

You can add your personal cases to every ones account if you would want, so they don't really care how many accounts you have.
