Disabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for Your Elvanto Account

We highly recommend using Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on your Elvanto account to enhance security for yourself and your users. 2FA provides an additional layer of protection against compromised passwords. However, in some rare cases, you may need to disable 2FA. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to disable 2FA on your Elvanto account.

⚠️ Caution Before Proceeding: Please check with your church admin before proceeding. Should your particular access permission require 2FA, you will not be able to access Elvanto once 2FA has been disabled.

Note: If you are unable to locate your verification and/or backup code and find yourself locked out of your account, we recommend contacting your church super admin to disable 2FA on your behalf.
