Enable two-step Verification on Amazon with Authenticator App & Phone number
Last Updated on March 3, 2021 by
In this article, we will show the procedure of enabling two-step verification on secondary Amazon accounts.
Previously whenever we activated the two-step verification we needed to go to the account setting option and then we needed to manually set the two-step verification.
But now when we create a secondary account at that time we can enable the two-step verification very easily.
We have another article about how we can set two-step verification manually on Amazon, for more details please check the article – https://ecomclips.com/blog/enable-disable-two-step-authentication-amazon-account/
