You have the option of integrating the mail.de Authenticator as an additional security option for your login. Once you have set up the authenticator, you will be asked to enter your login data and a third parameter, the authenticator code. You will receive this code from the relevant app, the mail.de Authenticator, which you have previously installed on your smartphone.
Integrating the mail.de Authenticator
If you would like to operate the Authenticator App on different end devices, this is possible. All you have to do is use the same Authenticator Secret Code, which you can find in the settings mode of the webmailer under "account/customer data/authenticator".
When operating the Authenticator app, please ensure that the correct time is set on your end device, as the generation of an Authenticator code also uses this parameter, among others.
We recommend that you write down the 16-digit Authenticator Secret Code and keep it in a safe place, as this code will be lost if you delete the Authenticator app or the account within the app. This means that you can no longer create an account without the Authenticator Secret Code and will lock yourself out of your mail.ch account. Should this happen, we can only reactivate your account if you send us your identity card.
