Set up 2-factor authentication (2FA) in Sage Accounting Start

Created on  | Last modified on 


This guide shows you how to set up 2-factor authentication in Sage Accounting Start.


2FA adds extra security to your Sage account. Every time you log in, you need to provide a code to verify it's you.

 NOTE: Note: Once you set up 2FA, your Sage app can remember you the next time you log in. You won't be prompted to authenticate again for 30 days. 

To set up 2FA

  1. Visit the Account Management page (opens in a new tab).
  2. Log in with your email address and password.
  3. Go to the 2-factor authentication section then select Send email. You'll receive an email to enrol in 2-factor authentication.

  4. Use the link in the email to set up 2FA on your account before continuing through the steps below.

Once you've selected the link in the invitation email, you can pick from three different ways to authenticate.

Different ways to authenticate

Once you have completed these steps, 2-factor authentication is activated. You then receive codes to your mobile device when you log in to your product or service.
