Two-factor authentication (2FA) provides an extra layer of security and helps to keep your AGL account safe. Protecting yourself with 2FA makes it harder for someone else to impersonate you and gain access to your AGL account. 2FA is optional for most customers, but we may ask you to enable it if you have requested additional security or if we notice something unusual.
How does it work?
If you’re logging in with your email and password (or code), then we’ll send a 6-digit code to your mobile. Enter the code, then proceed. The code will expire after 5 minutes.
