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.
In this step, we will use the Google Authenticator app to enable the 2-FA process on your LiveCoin account. Check this if you want to learn more about Google Authenticator.
Download the Google Authenticator app on your mobile phone which only takes a few minutes.
At the top portion of your LiveCoin account, you will see a red box that says enable the 2-FA process. Click on ‘Account’ and select ‘Security’.
Go to ‘Security Level’ and select ‘Level 2’. Click on the ‘Change security level’ button.
Scan the code using the Google Authenticator app and click on the ‘Continue’ box.
Go to your Inbox and look for the new LiveCoin confirmation message with a code. Copy that code.
Note: You have to be quick in copying the code as it expires right away.
Go back to LiveCoin, type in the code that you received from your email, the payment PIN that you’ve set up, and the six-digit code from the Google Authenticator app. These are the three codes that you need to type in every time you log in to your LiveCoin account.
Click on the ‘Continue’ button to proceed.
A green notification text confirms that 2-FA has been successful. You can start logging in to your LiveCoin account.
Every time you log in, you are asked to enter the confirmation code from the Google Authenticator app as an added security on your LiveCoin account.
