2-factor authentication adds a layer of security to protect your data.
After entering your e-mail and password, you will be prompted to enter a code. This code is valid only for a short time, so it cannot be re-used.
There are two ways you can obtain the code:
- It can be sent to the e-mail address you use to log in, or
- You can set up a Google Authenticator app on your phone (Android or iPhone) and this app will generate the code for you.
Even if you set up your Google Authenticator, you will still be able to use e-mail verification in case you lose your phone.
You can set up Google Authenticator on multiple devices, just repeat the setup procedure on each device.
Install Google Authenticator on your phone or tablet. You can search ‘Google Authenticator’ in your apps store or scan the below code with your phone:
