To enable two-factor authentication (2FA) and increase our security level, you will need to configure two-factor authentication in 3 Easy Steps from your smartphone:
- DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THE TWILIO AUTHY APP
The best way to manage all your 2FA accounts is to use the Authy app. It enables you to have a single mobile app for all your 2FA accounts and you can sync them across multiple devices, even accessing them on the desktop. Install Authy on your device by searching for it in your device’s app store.
Before using the app to set up your 2-factor authentication you need to create an account in the app and set it up.
- SCAN THE QR CODE
After validating your Twilio Authy account (or logging in) and setting up the app, at the main screen of Authy click on “Add account”. It can be at the bottom of the screen or at some menu.
When you click on “Add account”, you should see the above screen.
Click on “Scan QR code” and when your camera opens, hold your device up to the computer to scan the QR on the screen.
Once the QR code is captured, Authy will display your Coinstash account.
You can also change the nickname you give the account right on the Authy app. When ready, click “Save”. Once you save, the Authy app will generate a numeric 'token' associated with the
Globalfy account that you will need on the next step.
If you have problems scanning the QR Code, you can use the below Manual Entry Key. Just click “Enter key manually” on Authy as indicated on “Add account screen” image above.
- ENTER THE SECURITY CODE
After scanning the QR Code (or entering the Manual Entry Key), a 6- digit code will be displayed on your Authy app along with a timer. Enter the code generated on your app here to activate 2FA before the time runs out.
And that is it!
