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.
To activate 2FA on LBank, locate Two-factor authentication under “Security Setting” and click on “Add.”
Select your type of Two-factor authentication binding. Google authenticator is the most common one.
Scan the bar code to generate a six-digit code which you need to enter as well as the email code sent to your Inbox. Click on “Next” to continue.
You will receive a confirmation when the binding is successful.
It’s time to add money to your verified and secured LBank account. Click on “My Account” to view your Wallet. Select your Skycoin (SKY) and click on “Deposit.”
You will be routed to a new page where you’d get to view your Skycoin (SKY).
The system will automatically generate a deposit address. Make sure you are using this address in processing your Skycoin (SKY) deposit transaction to avoid losing funds.
You can view the deposit history by scrolling down the deposit page.
