Enable 2FA

Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is an added layer of security alongside your personal password. Turning on 2FA means you will receive a new random pin code either by email or phone every time you log in. This ensures that even if someone were to somehow steal your password they still cannot log in without access to your phone or email as they need BOTH password and a random code.

Enabling 2FA is an easy process of simply ticking a box to turn it on. This guide will explain how to set it up on your account to improve security.

If you have not configured a phone number on your account, 2FA notifications will be sent to your email.

If you have a phone number they will instead be sent to your phone by sms.

An authenticator app will override both email and sms and become the default source of your pin.

To use an authenticator app like "Google Authenticator", please see the guide Enabling an Authenticator App.

Open User Settings

First you'll need to navigate to the personal settings page. This is done by clicking your name in the top right corner of the site.

Once you are in the settings it's a simple process to turn on 2FA.

The tick box saying "Require security PIN for login" will turn this feature on for you.

By default this will send a pin to your email when logging in which looks like this:

Alternatively you can fill in your phone number in the field highlighted above which will change the 2FA to come via an SMS text instead of email.

Once you click save after ticking the box in settings your 2FA will be active.
