Account verification adds an extra layer of security to your account by alerting you when a new device or browser tries to log in and access your data.
With account verification, no one can access your account without your username and password—plus a special code sent to the account holder in an email.
When you log in from a new device or browser, we send a login alert email to the account email address. The email includes a verification code that you need to verify your device and finish logging in.
To verify a device, open your preferred browser on that device and complete the account verification steps. If you use a different browser later, you'll need to verify again.
Yes. We require account verification to help protect your account and data. It's not possible to turn off or opt out of account verification.
You can click Do this later to skip verification up to 3 times. Once you run out of skips, you'll be required to verify each time you log in from a device or browser that's not verified.
We have some great ways you can work with others on surveys while everyone uses their own secure account, username, and password.
A verified device depends on two things: the device and the browser you use on that device. If you complete the account verification steps on a device using your preferred browser, that device and browser will be verified. If you log in on a different browser on that same device (or clear your preferred browser's cookies), you’ll need to verify again.
You can have up to 2 devices verified at a time per account.
To see your verified devices, edit a device nickname, or remove a device, go to the Login Details section of My Account.
No, it’s not possible to have more than 2 verified devices saved per account at a time. If you haven't met your removal limit, you can still log in to SurveyMonkey with a different device or browser. To do that, you need to complete account verification again and remove an active verified device.
Every person on a team gets their own username and password and needs to complete account verification for their own account.
A team is made up of multiple SurveyMonkey accounts. Every person (user or seat) on the team has their own account and can have 2 verified devices saved at a time.
No. Each account on the team can have 2 verified devices saved at a time. If more people need to access SurveyMonkey, you can invite them to join your team.
