Use your phone or security key

To prove it’s you, have a phone or security key available that’s been registered to your account for at least 7 days. You can use:

  • The phone with the recovery phone number for your account.
  • A phone that’s signed in to your Google Account.
  • A security key that’s been added to your Google Account. This option is only available if you’ve turned on 2-Step Verification.
Tip: If you have a Google Account through work, you may be asked to verify it’s you with your corporate device.

If you’re asked to verify it’s you, follow the steps below. Have your phone nearby, and if possible, make sure it’s connected to the internet.

  1. On the “Verify it’s you” screen, complete the task or select More ways to verify. You’ll have some or all of these options:
    • Get a prompt sent to your phone
    • Get a verification code by text
    • Get a security code on your Android device
    • Use your screen lock or fingerprint on your Android device
    • Use a security key that’s been added to your Google Account
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions and use your phone when prompted.

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

If you don’t get a prompt within a few minutes:

  1. Make sure your phone is connected to the internet. To get prompts, you need Wi-Fi or mobile data turned on.
  2. Confirm that you’re signed in to your account on your phone.
  3. Go to the sign-in screen and tap Resend.

If you don’t get a text within a few minutes:

  1. Make sure the phone number you have is right.
  2. Make sure you have a strong network signal or that the phone is connected to Wi-Fi.
  3. Go to the sign-in screen and select Resend.
  4. If you still don’t get a text, select More ways to verify and then Use your phone or tablet to get a security code (even if it’s offline).
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions.
