How to enable 2-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Two-factor authentication is one of the most secure ways to protect your account from unauthorised access.
Note: If you don't have a 2FA app you will need to install it first. Alternatively you can download a desktop app. We recommend using Authy https://authy.com/download/.
The 2FA code will be asked at the time of:
- Accessing your wallets.
- Sending a payment.
Step 1. Navigate to your BitTube browser extension's menu and select "Options"
Step 2. Select "Security" and click "ENABLE 2FA" button
Step 3. Open your 2FA app on your smartphone or desktop. Click on the plus icon within the app and then select "Scan a barcode" (for desktop input the key showed below the QR code). Next, scan the provided barcode from the browser extension with your smartphone camera.
Step 4. Type the generated code in the "2FA Code" field in the browser extension and click "ENABLE 2FA"
That's it. Now every time you want to access your wallets and sent TUBEs you have to provide the code displayed on the 2FA app from your smartphone or desktop.
