Benchmark Email 2-Step Verification by Email

Account Settings Updated on November 17, 2023

Benchmark Email users can enable 2-Step Verification to enhance their account’s security. This feature is available in all Benchmark plans and can be accessed on the Security page in Account Settings.

Before Getting Started

  • After enabling the 2-Step Verification, the device you used for setup gets a special cookie that tells us your device is safe. This cookie is active for 30 days. If you attempt to log in from a different device, you must re-enter a new security code.
  • To enable 2-Step Verification for your account, you will need access to the account’s email address. If you need to change your account’s email address, please click here to learn more.

How to enable 2-Step Verification

You can set up 2-Step Verification from your Accounts Security page. The 2-Step Verification is not mandatory, but we encourage you to enable it and add an extra layer of security to your account.

To enable 2-Step Verification, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Benchmark Email account.
  2. Click on your account’s name on the top right and select Account Settings.
  3. Next, click on the Security option.
  4. Go to the Security page in the Account Settings.
  5. In the 2-Step Verification by Email section, click on the toggle option it should go from gray to blue.
  1. In the pop-up, you’ll see a confirmation message and the email address where we will email your security code. Confirm your choice by clicking Send Email. An email with your 6-digit code will be sent to your account’s email address.
  1. Go to your email inbox, open the Confirmation Email, and copy the 6-digit code.
  2. Back in Benchmark, paste the 6-digit code into the Verification Code field, ensuring no spaces are added, and click Confirm.
  1. If the code is correct, you’ll see a success message.


  • After enabling 2-Step Verification, a cookie will be added to your device for 30 days. If you attempt to log in from a different device within those 30 days, you must complete the 2-Step Verification process.
  • If you need to request the code again, copy the latest code received; previous codes will not work.
  • We limit the number of code requests to 5 every 15 minutes to prevent errors.
