Earlier this month we posted about how you can enable multi-factor authentication for your Parler account. When you enable multi-factor authentication for Parler, you are required to enter a secret code that is generated on your smartphone or sent over to your mobile number. This adds a second layer of security for your Parler account. Once the setting for multi-factor authentication has been enabled, you will have supply not only your username and password (as usually you do) but also an extra code from your smartphone.
However, if you want to disable this multi-factor authentication feature from your Parler account, then you can follow these steps :
- In your desktop web browser, visit Parler (https://www.parler.com/) and login to your account.
- Click on the menu icon (three lines) near the top left corner of the Parler website.
- Select Settings and Privacy from the menu.
- On the Parler settings page, you have to select Security section.
- Scroll down and you will find the multi-factor authentication section.
- Click on the button labeled Disable Multi-Factor Auth.
- Now you have disabled multi-factor authentication for your Parler account.
While it does seem like a headache to enter an extra code each time you try to login to your Parler account, multi-factor authentication is really good for keeping your Parler account safe. Imagine a situation when someone steals your Parler account username and password, they will try to login to your Parler account for malicious reasons – for posting something on your behalf or even worse – for changing your account settings in order to take it over. But if you have multi-factor authentication enabled, they won’t be able to even log in to your Parler account because they don’t have your smartphone where the secret code is generated. This is why recommend that you should enable multi-factor authentication for your Parler account as well as for other online accounts.
