What is two factor identification?
Securing your account is a top priority at Apartments.com Canada. Every Apartments.com Canada account has a two-factor authentication that gives your account two layers of protection. That means if someone gets your password without your permission, your account will still be secure.
To access certain areas of your account, you'll need to enter a one-time code that we'll send to your email address. You can also add a phone number to be verified via text message.
The default verification code is sent to your email address
When you're asked for a verification code, stay on that page! This page is where you will enter the code you receive from Apartments.com. If you close out of this page, your verification code will become invalid.
- You'll automatically receive your two-step verification code by email within a few minutes. Make sure you have access to the email account you use to log in to Apartments.com Canada.
- Check your email in a separate browser tab or window. The email is from firstname.lastname@example.org and the subject reads "Your one-time access code."
- Enter the code in the box and select Verify to access your Apartments.com account.
