Deactivating two-step authentication

You can deactivate two-step authentication. If you set up multiple authentication methods and you deactivate the primary method, then the next available backup method becomes the primary method.

If you decide to deactivate all methods of two-step authentication, then when you log in to your account, you're only prompted to enter your email address and your password. As a result, your account is less secure.


  1. From your Shopify admin, click your store name in the top-right.
  2. Click Manage account > Security.

  3. In the Two-step authentication section, click Remove next to the authentication method that you want to deactivate.

  4. Enter your password, and then click Next.
