How do I verify my login?
Some GoToAssist Remote Support v5 users may be prompted to complete additional verification steps when they log in to access their LogMeIn account. Once you have verified your login and signed in, you can manage trusted devices for your account, which will no longer require this verification process.
Why am I being asked to verify?
The security of your GoToAssist Remote Support v5 account is our highest priority. If we detect unusual activity or a login attempt from an unidentified yet suspicious location, we want to verify that it's really you logging in to access your account.
Can I turn this off for my account?
This is a built-in security feature that exists to help protect your account, and therefore it cannot be disabled. However, once a user verifies their account and successfully logs in, they can add their specific device as a trusted device to their user account profile to prevent verification checks from that device in the future.
Verify your login for unverified locations
- After logging in to GoToAssist Remote Support v5 , you are prompted with a message that instructs you to verify your email address.
- An email notification is sent to the inbox of your GoToAssist Remote Support v5 account email address. Go to your inbox and copy the code from the "Email verification" message. Note: The verification code is valid for 10 minutes.
- Paste the code in the "Verification code" field, then click Continue.
- Once verified, you are logged in to your GoToAssist Remote Support v5 account.
Verify your login for unidentified locations (deemed suspicious)
If you are actively logged in to your account via the Web App and a login attempt is made from an unidentified location, you are immediately logged out of your account and your account will remain locked until you reset your password to unlock it, as follows:
- Once you are automatically logged out, a message is displayed, "We've detected a suspicious sign-in to your account. To prevent unauthorized activity and keep your account safe, set a new password" to inform you why your account is locked. Reset your password to gain access to your account again.
What if I can't access the inbox where the email was sent?
