How to enable Two-Step Verification
This page will help you to enable two-step verification. Firstly, what is two-step verification?
Two-step verification simply allows you to make it even harder for someone else to access your account. Two-step verification is one of the best ways to keep your account secure as much as possible. So how does it work? Whenever you log into your account, you will either be sent a six-digit code via your email, or you can also receive the code via a code-generating software such as 'Authy', Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator. Each time the account is trying to be accessed from a new address, it will prompt you to type the six digit code. It is strongly recommended to enable two-step verification. Here's how to enable it -
1. Firstly you want to hover over 'User Menu' and click 'Personal Details' just as shown on the GIF below:
2. After you have done that, click 'Two-step verification' which should be on the left side under settings. Just as shown on the GIF below:
3. After you have done that enable the method you would like to use. I will show how to enable 'Email Confirmation'. Before you can enable it, you will be asked to type in a code that should be sent to your email. Once you have the code, paste it into the following box. If the code has been verified, you've enabled two-step verification successfully.
You will be logged out and when you log in, you will be asked to paste the following code that has been sent to your email. You will be asked to type a new code whenever you close your browser unless you mark the box where it says 'Trust this device for 30 days'. If you trust this device, you can log out and log in without being prompted to complete two-step verification for 30 days. Once the 30 days are up, you will be asked to type a new code.
That's it guys.
Thanks for reading!
