2FA using email

Now that 2FA will be required, I would like the ability to receive a verification email instead of SMS or Authentication app.

I was informed that Wyze is working on an EMail option as well. It is not quite ready yet.


A post was merged into an existing topic: Two Factor Authentication Requirement

We use the Wyze cameras as security in our Historic House museum. We don’t have a mobile phone to receive the SMS text with the code. I read earlier that we could use an email for authentication. But, I can’t seem to figure out how to enable that instead of an SMS texts. Please advise. I am about to order about a dozen V2s with skins and solar panels to monitor our 33-acre property. I won’t be able to use the Wyze system any longer if we can’t figure out how to authenticate without using a text message.

Welcome to the community @mini

Wyze is working on the email ability. You can use a 2FA authentication app like Google Authenticator. 2FA is used when logging into the app from scratch. Once logged on, you will not be prompted again unless you are logging into another device with your account. So basically, you logon to your account, provide the 2FA, and then you can add or view cameras.

The next time you start the app, you will not prompted for 2FA


Thanks for the speedy reply!

Here’s our reality: Our managers and docents monitor the feed from the cameras using our ipads and tablets simultaneously using the same account. If we’re offsite we all use our own accounts on our own phones. The advantage to using the main account, is that when the cameras go offline or shut off (which happens a lot on some of the Refurbished PanCams) you can restart or delete and re-add quickly and easily.


Got you, so setting the app up with 2FA and your account will allow for this to happen without prompting for 2FA again. The only time you will be prompted is if you’re logging into the account again or if you are using my I’ve view on a browser and need to login again

Make sense?
