Recovery Codes

As mentioned above, you will be provided with recovery codes during the setup process. It is crucial to keep this recovery codes in a safe place, as it serves as a backup in case you lose access to your authenticator app. The recovery code can be used to regain access to your account in case you lost your device or unable to access it. Treat this code with the same level of security as your login credentials.
