Account Verification

After setting up 2FA on your Adafruit account, make sure to verify your account.

Account verification helps the company verify a person it behind each Adafruit account. This will really help the team stop any kind of abuse on the platform such as: fake account generation, bots etc. 

Steps

Account verification is just three steps:

  1. If your account status says "Account Not Verified", an email will be sent to verify it
  2. In your email click on the link to verify you account 
  3. Confirm your verification status is changed to verified

Steps 1 & 2. Getting a Verification Email

After logging into your Adafruit account under Security and Privacy, check the Account Verification status. If the status reads "Account Not Verified", click the blue hyperlink right under it to 
"Send Account Verification Email." This will email you a verification email.

In your email, click  on the link which reads, "Verify my account"

Note the red rectangle illustrating the account verification settings below:
