What is 2FA?

Two-Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two step verification or TFA, is an extra layer of security that is known as "multi factor authentication" that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately on hand - such as a physical token.

How to turn on 2FA?

Please, follow these steps to turn on 2FA for your Cryptopay account:

  1. Log into your account and click Security on the settings page.
  2. Click Turn it on here:

In the pop-up window, you can scan the QR-code with a two-factor app like Authy or Google Authenticator to get started and put the validation code in the below field.

That's it! Now your account is protected with Two-Factor Authentication.
