Enabling two-factor authentication

  • Updated

You can set up an additional layer of account security that uses a time-based one-time password (TOTP) system as a second factor in user authentication. Before setting up two-factor authentication (2FA), ensure that your smartphone has a TOTP-compliant application such as Google Authenticator or Authy.

You can configure two-factor authentication settings in the Personal Settings area of the Account settings page.
