What is Two-Factor Authentication?
Two-Factor Authentication or 2FA is an additional layer of security used to protect your online accounts. It adds an extra step to the login process, requiring you to provide two different forms of identification or verification before accessing your account.
The first factor is a password or PIN. The second factor is a code sent to your phone. By combining these two factors, 2FA significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access to your accounts, even if someone manages to obtain your password.
This method of authentication adds an extra barrier for potential attackers, making it much more difficult for them to gain access to your personal information and sensitive data.
How to enable 2FA in my account?
To enable the Two-Factor Authentication you need to go to your profile settings. There you can find the Two-Factor Authentication section and switch the tumbler to Enabled:
After you switched the tumbler, you will see a pop-up where you can enter your phone number and press the button Send Code:
After you received a code, please enter it in the next pop-up and press Verify:
If you did not receive a code, you can request another one in 60 seconds.
After you verified the phone, the 2FA is enabled:
How does Two-Factor Authentication work?
1. At every login to the panel (entering username/password), a popup will be displayed for entering the code:
2. After entering the code, you will log in to the panel (if you entered the wrong code, you can request another code after a minute).
You can disable 2FA in your profile settings.
NB! Currently, two-factor authentication is available in all countries except CIS, the UAE, the Czech Republic, and the USA.
