Setup Facebook login recovery codes

Some features may not be available to all users.
If you've turned on two-factor authentication, you can get 10 recovery login codes to use when you're unable to use your phone.
Once you have your recovery codes, you can use one in place of your authenticator code when logging in.
To get your codes:
  1. Click your profile picture in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Select Settings & privacy, then click Settings.
  3. Click Security and Login.
  4. Under the Two-Factor Authentication section, click Use two-factor authentication. You may need to re-enter your password.
  5. Next to Recovery Codes, click Setup then Get Codes. If you've already set up recovery codes, you can click Manage then click Show Codes.
You can print or write down the 10 codes that appear. You'll only be able to use each code once. If you run out of codes or lose them, you can request new ones by clicking Get New Codes.
If you're having trouble logging into your account and you have two-factor authentication turned on, learn more about how to troubleshoot login with two-factor authentication.
