Are you talking about the camera's serial number or the encryption key for the wi-fi? In either case, the user manual should tell you where to find it.

You still didn't explain what you are trying to do, but I am assuming it is to link WiFi..

 

See this: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_70d#Wireless_Help

 

Authentication code would be for your router; i.e. use your wifi password.

Re: Where is the authentication code in the 5D Mark IV?

Hello everyone,  I'm new to the community.  Just bought the Mark IV, an overwhelming device for someone who previously owned a Nikon D50 and shot on AF.  So baby steps to understand this new beast of a camera and hope to become competent if I can find someone to teach me.  My problem today:  I've downloaded the software for Canon Gateway and it is asking for an "authentication code" on the Gateway site.  I've read that the code should be on my camera, but am unable to understand where that code may be.  It's not the serial number.  Can anyone help me with this?  Many thanks.

I don't use Canon Gateway but I would imagine you have to register with the site and they will then email you an authentication code to gain access.

You can skip the Canon Gateway registration and signup, if you want to.  You would run the install again to sign up, but just do not re-install the software.  You get prompted to sign up for the Canon Gateway again.
