How do I reset my two-factor authentication (2FA)?

Tip: If your Bitpanda 2FA-entry doesn't work, you could try to fix it by navigating into the app-settings and synchronising the time.

If the information in this article or the tip above didn't solve the issue, please send us a picture of the identity document you used for your verification (identity card or passport), next to a handwritten note with the following information, to deactivate your two-factor authentication (2FA):

- "Bitpanda 2FA Reset"
- Today’s date

Send us the picture directly from your registered email address using our contact form.

Tip: Do not forget to note your 2FA recovery code this time, which you will find under the QR-code. Alternatively, you can print out and store the QR-code safely. Hereafter, you can independently recreate your 2FA entry with this recovery code via the app.

Note: Also keep in mind, that after a 2FA reset, withdrawals are restricted for 48 hours. This is part of our safety system and cannot be bypassed. When you recreate your 2FA entry independently via the app, this restriction does not come into force.
