Increasingly, there have been incidents of intruders who want to gain access to other people’s wallets, bank accounts, portfolios, etc. This has been the reason for many high value account breaches and password leaks, as opposed to weak security.

At Bitnob, we value you and want to ensure you are safe and covered from such attacks, which is why we added an extra layer of security - the Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to help protect your asset.

What is Two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication, otherwise known as 2FA or two-step verification, is an extra layer of security in which users provide two separate ways to verify themselves before they can access their account.

Why should I set up 2FA on my Bitnob account?

  • Extra Security: 2FA serves as an extra layer of security and safety for your account and assets.

  • Autonomy: 2FA makes sure no one can access your account without your consent. It gives you total control of your account.

  • Zero Risk: 2FA has no risk on your account, rather it shields your account from risks like data breach, password leak, etc.

To set up your 2FA on your account, follow this how-to guide here.
