3. Secure your BitInka account by setting a 2-Factor Authentication (2FA)

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.

In this step, we will activate 2FA on your BitInka account through the Google Authenticator app. To start, go to the ‘Security’ page located on the left panel.

Check this if you want to learn more about Google Authenticator.

Note: If you’re having a hard time scanning the code, you can also opt to add your BitInka account on the Google Authenticator app by typing in your Authentication key.
