What is 2FA?
Two-factor authentication, also known as 2FA, is an extra layer of security or added protection which we refer 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 app. Click the profile icon in the upper right corner of the page to reveal the options and hit Settings.
Check this if you want to learn more about Google Authenticator.
Click on the “SECURITY” tab.
Download and install the Google Authenticator app on your smartphone. You can find this on your mobile Store app. When the download is complete, click on “ADD NEW” under the OTP (ONE-TIME PASSWORD) section.
Scan the QR code that is provided using the Google Authenticator app and type in the 6-digit code on the “Enter your OTP” box. Hit “CONFIRM” to proceed.
Below is an example of a 6-digit code from the Google Authenticator app.
If you see ‘Time-based One -time Password’ beside OTP (ONE-TIME PASSWORD), this means that 2FA is now active on your account.
Additionally, an email confirmation will also be sent to you stating that 2FA is already present on your ANXPRO account.
Now that your ANXPRO account is verified and secured we should now be able to make some deposits without worrying about fraudulent activities.
You can opt to deposit through Cash or Hong Kong Local Bank Cheques. In this step, we will discuss the process of funding your account with fiat currency via cheque deposit.

Click “Deposit” to continue to the next page.
