3. Secure your OKCoin account by setting a 2-factor authentication (2FA)

Wondering what 2FA is?
Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type (subset) of multi-factor authentication. It is a method of confirming a user’s claimed identity by utilizing a combination of two different factors: 1) something they know, 2) something they have, or 3) something they are.

An excellent example of two-factor authentication is the withdrawing of money from an ATM; only the correct combination of a bank card (something that the user possesses) and a PIN (personal identification number, something that the user knows) allows the transaction to be carried out.

In the case of exchanges what the user knows are the login details username and password and what he possesses is the 2nd factor for the authentication which is a code. The code can be either received through SMS on users personal mobile phone or found in an application like Google Authenticator or Authy.

So, to get to the 2FA section, go to Security and look for Google Authenticator.

Click on Account.

Scan the barcode and enter the numbers. Click on the confirm box to proceed.

The green button is an indication that 2FA has been enabled.

Two-Factor Authentication is now successfully enabled on your OKCoin account!
