Add or remove trusted computers

If you don’t want to enter a 2-Step Verification code or use your Security Key every time you sign in to your Google Account, you can mark your computer or mobile device as trusted. With trusted computers and devices, you don’t need to enter a verification code each time you sign in.

Adding trusted computers and devices

You can add a computer to your trusted list at any time. When you sign up for 2-Step Verification, you’ll be asked if you want to trust the computer you’re using.

You can also mark a computer as trusted by selecting Don't ask again on this computer when you enter a verification code.

Removing trusted computers from your list

You can remove computers and devices from your trusted list at any time. To do so:

  1. Sign in to My Account.
  2. In the “Sign-in & security” section, select Signing in to Google.
  3. Choose 2-step verification.
  4. Under "Devices you trust," select Revoke all.
"Don't ask again on this computer" option

You might be asked to give your username, password, and code more than once even though you checked the box next to "Don't ask again on this computer" at sign-in. Usually this is because your browser, like Chrome or Firefox, doesn’t have cookies enabled or is set to delete cookies after a certain period of time.

If you don’t want to enter a 2-Step Verification code or use your Security Key every time you sign in, try these steps:

1. Edit your browser’s cookie settings. You can either set your browser to save cookies, or you can add an exception for Google Account cookies by adding [*.] Choose the browser you use below for more information on how to edit your settings.

2. Turn off incognito mode. Incognito windows can't use cookies from other browser sessions on your computer. To sign in, open a non-incognito window.

3. Check "Don't ask again on this computer" for each different browser or computer that you use. If you use different browsers or computers to sign in, make sure you check this box on every computer and adjust your cookie settings on each browser.
