Two-factor authentication, also commonly referred to as 2FA is an optional feature for extra-strong security. It adds another layer of security to your account so if compromised or stolen, only you can log in.

STEP 2 — Click "Enable Two-factor Authentication" to open a pop-up window,
STEP 3 — Scan the barcode with your application
STEP 4 — Enter the six-digit code from the application (After scanning the barcode image, the app will display a six-digit code that you can enter below)
