I lost my phone or deleted my two-factor authentication app. How to do a 2FA reset?

If your mobile device is lost, stolen or the Authy/Google Authenticator app was deleted from your phone, you can perform an automated two-factor authentication reset.

Luno has implemented a feature that lets you reset your own security settings in the event that you lose access to your mobile device.

To do a two-factor authentication reset:

  • Sign in from the website (not mobile app)

  • When asked for the two-factor authorisation code, click on "Having trouble signing in?"

  • We’ll send you an email containing a special link

  • Click on the link and follow the instructions



If successful, the reset should occur after a 12 hour cool down period.

Should you encounter any issues, please contact us here.
