Disable logging in using a one-time password

Attention. Before deleting your account from Yandex Key, first go back to your standard password in Yandex ID. If you delete your Yandex Key account without changing the login method, you won't be able to disable logging in with a one-time password for this account. In this case, you will have to restore access.

To go back to using a regular password:

  1. Open the Security tab.

  2. In the Login method section, click the current login method.

  3. In the list, select Password + sms or Standard password.

  4. On the page that opens, enter a one-time password from the Yandex Key app to confirm the changes.

  5. Set a standard password for your account.

You'll need to create new app passwords for third-party apps and mail importers because your old passwords will stop working after you disable logging in with a one-time password. You can create new passwords on the app password management page.
