Two-step verification adds an extra layer of security to your Flexmls login by requiring you to enter a security code when you log in. Enabling two-step verification also allows you to be logged in on multiple devices without ending other Flexmls sessions. Two-step verification may be required by your MLS.
Two-step verification works by sending you a code when you try to log in to Flexmls. This code can be received via an authenticator app, a text message, or a phone call.
