If you no longer need a multi-factor authentication (MFA) device that is bound to your Alibaba Cloud account or you want to change the MFA device, you can unbind an MFA device from the Alibaba Cloud account. This topic uses the Google Authenticator app as an example to describe how to unbind an MFA device from an Alibaba Cloud account.
After you unbind an MFA device from an Alibaba Cloud account, the MFA device cannot be used to verify the identity of the Alibaba Cloud account. This reduces account security.
Move the pointer over the profile picture in the upper-right corner of the console, and click Security Settings.
In the Account Protection section of the Security Settings page, click Edit.Note
MFA is renamed Time-based One-time Password (TOTP).
Click Turn off in the Account Protect settings section.
On the Identity Verification page in the Alibaba Cloud Management Console, enter the dynamic verification code that is displayed in the Google Authenticator app, and click Submit.
