What is 2FA and how to turn it on?

Updated 1 week ago by Konstantin

What is 2FA?

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 account.

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:

3. In the pop-up window, scan the QR-code with a two-factor app like Authy or Google Authenticator;

4. Put the validation code in the below field:

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