*Enable 2FA (Two-factor Authentication) - This applies only to programs using the pay function of the BlueZebra platform

The very first task you need to complete is to enable 2FA within your officiating.com account, while simultaneously downloading the free Twilio Authy authentication app to your cell phone. Two-factor authentication helps secure your online account by adding a second layer of protection to your password. We highly encourage you to read through these 2FA FAQs prior to performing 2FA.

Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to enable 2FA and to download the Twilio Authy app to your cell phone. Note: do not delete the Twilio Authy app from your cell phone as you will need it throughout the season, and beyond, to authenticate your officiating.com account.

Complete Your Profile

Click on the gray silhouette on the righthand side of the page and then click on "Your Profile."
