What is Two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication, otherwise known as 2FA or two-step verification is an extra layer of security in which users provide two separate ways to verify themselves before they can access their account. It goes without saying that this extra level of security is needed when it comes to protecting your asset, and as a means of ensuring that no one can compromise your account.

How do you set up your 2FA on your Bitnob account?

To set up your 2FA on your Bitnob account, follow the steps below:

  • Log into your Bitnob app

  • Tap on "Account" at the bottom of the app's homepage

  • Scroll down to Security

  • Click on Set up 2FA

  • Click on Google authenticator

  • Click continue

  • If you haven't downloaded the Google authenticator, click on "download it here"

  • If you already have the Google authenticator, copy the setup key or scan the QR code with another phone

  • Once you have copied the setup key, open your Google Authenticator app on your phone

  • Name your account as "Bitnob"

  • Paste the copied setup key

  • A six-digit code will appear

  • Copy the six-digit code generated for you and paste it into your Bitnob app to enable 2FA, and tap "Enable"

  • Copy the Recovery Code shown and save for future use.

* Kindly note that you are required to copy the six-digit code generated from your Google authenticator and paste it into your Bitcoin account after your email and password before you can access your Bitnob account.
