How to Activate 2-Factor Authentication (2FA)
2 Factor Authentication can currently be activated for:
- Sign in
- Password Change
- Transaction Approval
- Profile Management.
|On Desktop or Browser
|On the Mobile App
Please make sure to save the barcode and the provided key as these are necessary for recovery.
To move your 2FA from one device to another
From the 2-Factor Authentication section, disable each of the actions that are enabled for 2FA. This will require entering a 2FA-generated code from your old device.
If you have lost your old device, you need to scan your previously generated barcode or input the generated key (the backup) on your new device. This will allow you to access your account from the new device.
Once each action is disabled, press 'Setup New 2FA' and simply follow the instructions on your new device to enable 2FA.
