What is two-factor authentication (2FA)?

2FA is an extra layer of security you can activate on your account. It’s an additional layer of security on top of your login credentials (your username and password).

When 2FA is enabled, you’ll need to have access to your mobile device in order to login. This device is what’s called your “second factor” to login on top of your login credentials. If you would like to activate 2FA you can choose either Google 2FA or Coinsquare 2FA.

Coinsquare 2FA requires you to scan the QR code on the desktop site using the official Coinsquare mobile app in order to login. You can scan it from the settings page on the app.

Google 2FA requires you to enter the active 6 digit code or “token”. This number updates every 30 seconds on your mobile app.
