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.
- Sign in to your Gusto account
- Click your profile name that appears on the upper-right corner.
- Select Account Preferences.
- Next to Two-Step Authentication, Click Activate for Stronger Security.
- Enter your mobile phone number.
- Click Send Confirmation Code.
- You'll receive a text message with an authentication code.
- Log back into Gusto by entering this number along with your Gusto password.
- 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.
