Step-by-Step Guide to Enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

How to enable Two Factor Authentication in ShrtFly

by Peter Deski

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a security process that requires users to provide two forms of identification to access their online accounts. It typically involves something the user knows (like a password) and something the user has (like a security token or mobile device).

2FA protects against hackers by adding an extra layer of security to the withdrawal process. Even if a hacker manages to steal your password, they would still need the second factor (like your phone or a security token) to withdraw your money. This makes it much harder for hackers to gain access to your funds, even if they have your password.

Overall, enabling 2FA on your accounts is a simple and effective way to improve your online security and protect your sensitive information from cyber threats.

Enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a great way to add an extra layer of security to your online accounts. Here are the general steps to enable 2FA:

  1. Choose a 2FA app: There are several apps available that can generate the 2FA codes for you. Some popular options include Google Authenticator, Authy, Microsoft Authenticator, and LastPass Authenticator.
  2. Enable 2FA on your account: Log in to the account you want to enable 2FA on and go to the account settings. Look for an option to enable two-factor authentication, and follow the prompts to set it up.
  3. Provide password: Now please provide your account password and click on the “Get Started” button.
  4. Scan the QR code: The account you’re enabling 2FA on will provide you with a QR code that you can scan with your 2FA app. Open the app, select “scan barcode” and point your phone at the QR code.
  5. Save your backup codes: When setting up 2FA, the account will usually give you some backup codes. Save these in a safe place, in case you lose access to your 2FA app.
  6. Verify the code: Once you’ve scanned the QR code, the app will generate a 6-digit code that you’ll need to enter into the account you’re enabling 2FA on. This code will change every 30 seconds, so make sure to enter it quickly.
  7. Confirm 2FA is working: Once you’ve entered the code, the account should confirm that 2FA is enabled. To test that it’s working, you have to request a payout. The system should prompt you for a code from your 2FA app.

That’s it! You’ve now enabled 2FA on your account and added an extra layer of security to protect your money or withdrawals.

Now in case your phone is lost or stolen you can still access your account with the backup code which is placed in a safe place by you (Ex: Written on paper).

In case your backup code is also lost, you can contact our support to disable the 2FA for your account, and once we disable it, you can generate a new backup Key and QR code.

Note: Please use a unique password for your shrtfly account and refrain from using the same password on any other websites. It’s recommended to keep separate passwords for each site to ensure maximum security. Using the same password across multiple sites increases the risk of a security breach, which could result in unauthorized access to your account and potential loss of funds by hackers.
