Disable two-factor authentication

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, you won't be able to disable two-factor authentication (2FA) 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 that you are disabling 2FA.

  5. Set a standard password for your account.

You will need to create new app passwords for third-party apps and mail importers because your old passwords will stop working after you disable 2FA. You can create new ones on the Access management page.
