If you will be somewhere without your mobile device or USB key, you can use backup codes for 2-Step Verification.

Please do not store these codes in your district email or Google Drive, as you will not be able to log into your account to get these codes. 


To learn how, please read Sign in with backup codes on Google’s support site.


Please note:

  • Once you use a backup code to sign in, that code becomes inactive.
  • You can generate a new set of 10 backup codes whenever you want, using the instructions above.
  • When you generate a new set of codes, the old set automatically becomes inactive
