Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
As of 1 February 2023, ARIN now requires two-factor authentication on all ARIN Online accounts. Users have three methods of two-factor authentication to choose among: An Authenticator Application, SMS, or a single Security Key. Please see our announcement and the FAQ for more information.
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a means of identifying a user through two separate pieces of information or identification. For ARIN Online, these two pieces are your account password and a one-time password generated using a third-party mobile authenticator, provided through SMS, or provided through a physical hardware device. By combining the two proofs of identity that an unauthorized user is unlikely to possess, two-factor authentication provides an increased level of security for ARIN Online users.
Get Started with Two-Factor Authentication

Voice call authentication is not available for new 2FA sign ups. However, it remains available for users previously signed up and approved.
