How To Enable Two-step Verification On Trello

Do you want to have another layer of security to protect your data on Trello? If so, you can enable the two-step verification feature on your account. As long as you have an authenticator app, you can use 2FA for your account. Check our guide below, and we’ll show you how.


If you’re using Trello to handle a project, the security of your data must be one of your top priorities. After all, you don’t want any information to leak if you’re working on a large and important project.

Although the password or the single-sign-on option can protect your account, some people feel that it’s not enough to secure their data on Trello. Thankfully, the app has an optional two-step verification feature that is available for everyone to use.

Here’s our guide about using 2FA on Trello.

How to enable two-factor authentication on Trello

If you worry about the security of your data on Trello, you can enable the 2FA feature on the app. In this way, other people will have a hard time accessing your account.

You can enable the 2FA feature from the Trello web app. Follow our tutorial below, and we’ll show you how to do it from a computer.

  1. Open your preferred browser, visit Trello, and sign in to your account.
  2. Click your profile icon on the top right corner of the page and select “Settings” on the menu.

  3. Scroll down and select the “Configure two-step verification” option.

  4. Enter your Atlassian account password and click the “Set up” button.

  5. Make sure that you have an authenticator app on your phone and click the “Yes, ready to scan code” button at the bottom of the page.

  6. Scan the code on your screen using your authenticator app, enter the six-digit code, and connect your phone.

  7. Make sure to save the recovery codes before clicking the finish option.

Please note that 2FA is not available if you’re using the single sign-on option from Google, Microsoft, or Apple. However, you can always add a password to your account if you want to use the two-step verification option.

To wrap things up

Now that you know how to enable 2FA on Trello, you can add another layer of security to protect your workspaces and boards on the app. Make sure to save the recovery codes in case you lose access to your authenticator app in the future.
