In this digital day and age, you can never be too cautious when it comes to protecting your data. That’s why we’ve incorporated 2-factor verification, also referred to as 2FA, which adds an extra layer of protection on top of your username and password logins.
2FA is in place for you to verify your identity, and involves the process of entering a verification code sent to one of your devices, usually triggered when signing in or when looking to send crypto from your account.
We use the following authentication options, which you will verify when creating an account:
- SMS Authentication
- Email Authentication
Additionally, we recommend using an extra layer of security, through a third-party authentication app:
- TOTP Authenticators
What Is TOTP?
TOTP stands for Time-based One Time Password and is the software mechanism that two-factor authentication apps use to generate temporary security codes. We recommend adding 2FA to your account, which is done through a third-party TOTP app. In the process of setting up your 2FA, we’ll guide you through finding and installing a TOTP app.
