  1. When you connect successfully, you were prompted to click a 'Backup Codes' button. If you did this, you might be able to find it in your folders - the default name of the file is codes.txt.
    Next, insert one of the single-use codes instead of the 6 digits.

  2. If you cannot locate the file, open a ticket and request your 2FA to be reset, You will need to provide your username and proof of ownership by sending us a screenshot from your authors dashboard page (https://authors.curseforge.com/account).
