Hey @Backtrakclothin 

If you're experiencing difficulties activating two-step authentication on Shopify, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue:


  1. Clear your browser cache and cookies: Clearing your browser's cache and cookies can help resolve any temporary issues that might be causing the problem. After clearing the cache, try accessing the two-step authentication setup process again.

  2. Disable browser extensions: Some browser extensions or add-ons can interfere with the functionality of certain websites. Disable any extensions temporarily and try setting up two-step authentication again.

  3. Try a different browser or device: Switching to a different browser or device can help determine if the issue is specific to your current setup. Try using a different browser or device to access Shopify and proceed with the two-step authentication setup.

  4. Check your internet connection: Ensure that you have a stable internet connection. Unstable or slow internet connections can sometimes cause issues with website functionality.

  5. Contact Shopify support: If the issue persists, it's best to reach out to Shopify's support team for further assistance. They have access to specific information about your account and can provide guidance on resolving the problem.

You can contact Shopify support through their website or by logging into your Shopify account and accessing the Help Center. Explain the issue you're facing with activating two-step authentication, and they should be able to assist you in resolving it.


Remember, Shopify's support team is best equipped to handle platform-specific issues and provide accurate guidance for resolving any technical difficulties with two-step authentication setup.

Hi, @Backtrakclothin.


Welcome to the Shopify Community.


Are you able to share a screenshot when you attempt to activate two-step authentication? 


As @Moeed has mentioned, clearing your cache and cookies may help with local browser issues. I'd like to share some additional local troubleshooting methods below.



If you've exhausted all troubleshooting methods above with no success, I recommend contacting our support via the Shopify Help Center so we can further investigate.
