Security info (preview) overview

The Security info page helps you to set up your two-step verification methods and your password reset information. It also helps you to update your personal security information and your default verification method.

If what you're seeing on your screen doesn't match what's being covered in this article, it means that your administrator hasn't turned on this experience yet. Until this experience is turned on, you must follow the instructions and information in the Set up my account for two-step verification section.
