2-factor authentication is an important security tool in keeping accounts safer than simply
using a password. As the name suggests, it adds a second step to logging into any account, making it more difficult for unauthorized users to break in.
How does it work?
Once your account is set up, any attempt to log into your account will
require a special authorization code, provided by an app, which is used to finish the login
process or withdrawing your assets.
Why use 2-Factor Authentication?
Account security is important for everyone, and nobody
wants their accounts or information being used without their permission. 2-Factor
Authentication adds an extra layer of security, making it considerably more difficult to breach an account. Since the 2-Factor code is dependent on the app itself, obtaining it is
considerably more difficult for potential breach attempts that would normally rely on using a password only.
Setting up Google 2FA
Download Google authenticator app:
Apple store link - https://apps.apple.com/app/google-authenticator/id388497605
Go to account settings -> Security and press enable at 2FA section
Save your secret code (it’s better to write it down somewhere) and scan the QR code with the Google authenticator app.
Enter the confirmation code from the app.
Once you have everything set up, the only extra step to logging and withdrawing will be using the app-generated code alongside your regular password. One small extra step for one large increase to account security!
