What if I didn’t get the code?
Try resending it—you’ll see the option in Stash (screenshot below). There is also an option to get a verification code via a phone call or email.
Note if you try the email option, it might be sent to your spam or promotion folders— just look for something like “2 Factor Authentication – Verification Code”.
