What is Two Factor Authentication (2FA)?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a security measure built to prevent unauthorized access to user accounts by requiring a second factor layer. For example, 2FA could be an additional verification code from E-mail or SMS after inputting the login password. For security reasons, we suggest all users to install and enable Google Authenticator as it provides a time limited verification to minimize the risk of leaking personal information.
Please see the following tutorials for how to install or reset the Google Authenticator:
How to disable Google Authenticator?
- Once login, go to security settings from personal information, then click “disable” on Google Authenticator;
- After a successful verification finished and the function will be disabled.
For security reasons, we suggest keeping at least one 2FA verification method enabled at all time.
