How to Turn On 2FA for Origin

Please note: Specific instructions for enabling 2FA are subject to change without notice. Please check with each website or app for the most up-to-date information on this feature.

In order to provide a safe and secure way to enjoy games and get support, Origin offers a Login Verification process as an additional security step to help keep intruders away from your account. This is a required step to access the FIFA Ultimate Team Web App. This security measure ensures that no one can log in to your Origin account without having both your password and your phone (or access to your email account--you will choose phone or email for your verification method). The Login Verification process creates short-lived, one-time-use numeric passcodes that are generated for you personally, and are needed to log into your account. These codes are generated when you need them and are only valid for a short period of time to ensure maximum security.

1. Log in to your Origin account and go to your  Account Management page. Find the Login Verification section under the Security tab.

2. Click Login Verification and choose whether to have your codes sent by email or by phone.

3. You’ll now be sent a code either by email or phone when attempting to log in from an untrusted device, and every 90 days when logging in from trusted devices, making sure only you and your unique code will be able to get into your Origin account. Once you receive the code, enter it into the field provided. Click Turn On Login Verification.

 

4. After you’ve activated Login Verification, a set of emergency backup codes will be generated for use whenever you don’t have your phone handy when trying to log in.

Backup codes are your insurance against losing access to your Origin account in the event that you have lost your phone. These codes can be viewed and renewed by heading to your Origin Account and Privacy Settings in the Origin client or online, by going to the Security tab, and clicking View next to Backup Codes.

If you start running out of backup codes, you can always generate more through your Account Management page.
