What are recovery codes?
When you lose your device, including Google Authenticator or Authy, you can still use the recovery codes to log into your PayPro account. You can then disable two-factor authentication and log in again with your email address and password.
If you have lost both your device and the recovery codes, there is a last resort to get back to your account. Do you want to know what that means? Then read this article.
