The 2FA (Two-factor authentication) or sometimes referred to as the two-step verification or dual-factor authentication, is a security process in which users provide two different authentication factors to verify themselves. It can be as simple as a sole number to access your account, very similar to the number given by a bank token.

The two-factor authentication or 2FA is very important to give added security to your funds in Bitso. In order to safeguard your funds a 2FA will be added to your Bitso account. 

¿Why should I use a 2FA?

Strong authentication is necessary to increase cybersecurity for accounts and online services such as your Bitso account. Passwords alone without a 2FA process, provide weak protection because they can be guessed, phished, and, once stolen, tried against a range of accounts in the hope of securing a hit. Having a 2FA adds an additional layer of security to the authentication process to access your Bitso account. To activate 2FA security for your Bitso account, you can download a two-step verification app on your smartphone through any of the applications stores, we suggest: “Google Authenticator” or  "Authy".
