Activate two-step authentication

Add an extra layer of security to your account by enabling two-step authentication. Using two-step authentication reduces the chances of having your account accessed by anyone else as they would need to have your Gusto login email, password, and phone number.

  1. Sign in to your Gusto account
  2. Click your profile name that appears on the upper-right corner.
  3. Select Account Preferences.
  4. Next to Two-Step Authentication, Click Activate for Stronger Security.
  5. Enter your mobile phone number.
  6. Click Send Confirmation Code.
  7. You'll receive a text message with an authentication code.
  8. Log back into Gusto by entering this number along with your Gusto password.
  9. Every time you log into Gusto moving forward, you'll be texted a 6-digit authentication code to your mobile device. Standard SMS messaging rates apply according to your cellular carrier.

Note: If you have two-step authentication enabled and lose access to your phone number, please call us at (800) 936-0383 and ask to speak with our Assurance team so they may assist with accessing your account.
