As an added security measure, Emirates Skywards has introduced a second-level authentication through the use of one-time passcode for certain Emirates Skywards account activities, such as account login, profile updates and redemption activities (one-time passcode service).
A one-time passcode is a randomly generated number which Emirates Skywards will SMS and/or email to a member in connection with certain account activities. This is a second-level authentication, which may be required from the member in order to confirm that the account activity has been authorised by the member. The member will be informed at the time of the relevant account activity if a one-time passcode is required. Emirates Skywards may not require a one-time passcode for every login or account related activity.
