What is 2FA?
Two-factor authentication, also known as 2FA, is an extra layer of security or added protection which we refer to as multi-factor authentication. Not only the username and password are required but also a piece of information that only a user possesses. This process is to confirm a user’s claimed identity.
The 2FA process helps lessen the number of identity theft cases and as well as phishing via email. It would be harder for potential intruders to gain access and steal someone’s identity and personal data without that piece of information that only the account owner knows.
In the case of exchanges what the user has are his/her login details such as the username and password. The form of 2FA that a user possesses for this instance is a token or code. The code can be received either through SMS on a user’s mobile phone or via applications like Google Authenticator or Authy.
For this step, we will show you how to enable 2FA using the Google Authenticator. From the ‘Account’ page look for ‘Security’ and click on it.
Check this if you want to learn more about Google Authenticator.
Download and set-up the “Google Authenticator” app on your smartphone. You can also find this from your ‘Play Store’ app. After downloading ‘Google Authenticator’ and selecting it as our method, we are now ready to enable 2FA on your account. To do so click on the ‘Enable 2FA’ button.
Note: A reset process is available if the phone used for authentication gets lost.
Just like the changing of password you will also be required to check your email to authorize this action.
Click on the ‘Authorization link’ that is in your email.
The next step will now require you to scan the QR code. To execute this, open the ‘Google Authenticator’ on your smartphone and add a new account. Scan the QR code provided and enter the 6-digit code from the authenticator app on the ‘Your Token’ box. Hit on the ‘Validate’ button to complete the process.
Important note: Secure the provided “Secret code” as you will need this in case your phone gets lost.
See below an example of a 6-digit code generated by the Google Authenticator.
Enabling 2FA means safe and secure transaction. Since 2FA is now activated, we can now proceed in putting money into your account. But before doing so, we need to add a Crypto Capital account first. This step is required so you can make deposits into your GetBTC account. Thus, the reason why you were asked to create one during the ‘Verification process’ which is step 3.
Please click here to go to the ‘Bank Accounts’ section.
Click on the ‘Add Account’ button to add your Crypto Capital account.
Enter your ‘Crypto Capital’ account number, description, and currency. Make sure that the currency selected is correct to avoid a conversion fee. Click ‘Add Account’ after confirming that all information is correct.
You have successfully added your Crypto Capital account!
You may now make a deposit or fund your GetBTC account.
From the ‘My Account’ section click on the ‘Deposit’ tab to initiate the deposit process.
Enter the Account for crediting, Payment method, and Amount to be paid. Confirm that all information is correct. After agreeing to the ‘Total amount’ and ‘Fee’ click on the ‘Charge’ button.
To complete the process follow the next steps provided on the next page depending on the ‘Payment method’ you have selected. A prompt will show up stating that the deposit is complete.
You can view your available funds under the ‘Approximate balance’ on your ‘My Account’ section.
Finally! Since funds are already present on your account, you can now buy your first Bitcoin on GetBTC. To buy click on the ‘Buy/Sell’ tab.
