How to enable 2-Factor Authy on my account

Learning how to secure your account further builds an extra wall of protection for your finances and everyone should learn how to do it to prevent their accounts from being hacked.

Although there is a 2FA option that uses SMS, it is highly recommended that you use Google Authenticator or Authy. SMS may not be the most reliable form of verification as “SIM swapping” is a tactic that some hackers use to get your SMS messages.

The first step to enabling Authy is to download the Authy app. Next, go into your account settings and click on “security”. Under “Login Authenticator”, click on the button that says Authy. After clicking that, a QR code should appear and all you have to do is to use your mobile app to scan it and then enter the 6 digit number your phone will produce inside the app.
