Enable 2FA

For more security, consider enabling 2FA authentication via TOTP or through Authy. For TOTP authentication, you can use any authenticator app supporting TOTP (6238), e.g. Microsoft Authenticator, Google Authenticator.

Important: If you don't receive the SMS when registering with Authy, try the call option.

View active devices

In the Account section of the account dashboard, you will see devices logged into your Termius account and the last activity date for each. You can remotely sign out from a device, if desired.

If you choose to sign out from a device that is now offline, you will be signed out only when it goes online.

Change password / encryption passphrase

Changing password or encryption passphrase can be done only in the app because it requires re-encrypting your data, which is not currently possible to do from the website.

  1. In Preferences, open the Account section.
  2. Click Change password / Change passphrase.

Link with GitHub

Linking your account with GitHub will automatically provide you with a free Teams subscription, provided that you have access to GitHub Student Developer Pack or GitHub Teacher Toolbox in your GitHub account.

You can link your Termius and GitHub accounts on the Misc page.

Delete account

To delete your account, click Delete Account at the top of the Account page.

If you don't see this option, please, contact Termius support.
