What is 2FA and how to turn it on?

Updated 2 months ago by Nikolai

What is 2FA for a business account?

Two-Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, TFA, two-step verification or multi-factor authentication, is an extra layer of security that requires not only a login and password but also something that only an account holder knows and has an access to. In our case, we require your mobile phone with a special App where a single-use code is generated. Once 2FA is enabled, you will need to enter this six-digit code to the correspondent field every time you log in.

This adds a second layer of defence and makes it almost impossible for anyone but you to access your corporate account.

How to turn on 2FA?

Please follow these steps to turn on 2FA for your Cryptopay’s corporate account:

  1. Log into your business account and click Security on the settings page:
  2. In the pop-up window, on the left side, you can see QR-code, scan it with a two-factor app like Authy or Google Authenticator;
  3. Put the validation code in the below field and press Enable 2FA:

That’s it! Now your business account is protected with Two-Factor Authentication:
