Enable multi-factor authenticationedit
To add an extra layer of security to your Elasticsearch Service account, you can either set up Google authenticator or text messaging on a mobile device.
Before you start using multi-factor authentication, verify that your device has SMS capabilities or download the Google Authenticator application onto your device.
To enable multi-factor authentication, you must enroll your device.
If the device you want to remove is your only enrolled device, you must disable multi-factor authentication first. If your device is lost or stolen, contact support.
