What is the Double Factor Authentication (2FA)?
Tue, 27 Oct, 2020 at 4:56 PM
Two-factor authentication offers additional security in the login process.
To do this, you will need to download the Google Authenticator App on your iOS or Android device. The application generates a 6-digit one-time verification code and it will change every 60 seconds, to provide more security.
To activate 2FA in Bit2Me, you have to follow these steps:
- Connect to your Bit2Me account from here.
- Access the SECURITY button located at the top left.
- Click on the SET YOUR 2FA button
- You will get a screen with a QR code, a username and a secret password that we will have to keep:
- You will have to scan this code from the Google Authenticator app by choosing the Scan a Barcode option to capture the QR code with your device's camera or with the private key that appears on the screen.
- Once the Google Authenticator app is linked to our Bit2Me account, we will see the 6-digit code that you will need each time we want to connect to Bit2Me.
If you lose your 2FA, you can follow these instructions: Have you lost access to your 2FA?
