My 2FA codes are not working

Check that the clock on your device is correct and set to the correct timezone. An incorrect clock can cause codes to be out of sync.

I lost my Authenticator device or app

If you have saved the original QR code (or text code) when you first set up 2FA for your Liquid account, simply use your chosen 2FA device to scan that code again.

If you have lost the original code please contact our support team and they will be able to resolve the situation. For security purposes you will be asked to provide the following:

The process will require you to provide a selfie of you holding both your identity document and a handwritten note detailing your request. Please prepare these before you contact us.

Requirements for selfie:

  • Please use a light, neutral background.
  • Please look straight at the camera.
  • Selfie must be in color.

Requirements for identity document:

  • Identity document can be national ID, international passport or driving license.
  • Identity document must be original (not photocopied).
  • Identity document should be in characters of the Latin alphabet. Japan driving license is accepted.
  • Information on the document must be clearly visible.

Requirements for handwritten note:

  • Note must contain a reference to Liquid and time/date of your request, for example "LIQUID I want to disable 2FA 2019-MM-DD" (with today's date).
  • Note must be handwritten and original (not photocopied)

To avoid being locked out next time, please make sure to back up your secret codes.

Important Note

When you update 2FA, your Liquid account will enter a 72 hour cooling period. The cooling period is designed to protect Liquid clients from potential threats. Cooling periods prohibit users from:

  • Withdrawing funds
  • Resetting password
  • Changing email
  • Changing 2FA

Fiat and crypto deposits are still available within the cooling period.
