Optery supports Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) / 2-Step Verification (2FA) for an additional layer security for your account. Read the steps below for help getting this set up.

Adding MFA / 2FA helps prevent your account from being compromised at login from someone that has guessed or stolen your password. In order to enable MFA / 2FA, you first need to install on your mobile device an authenticator application such as Google Authenticator, Authy, or any other compatible authenticator app. The authenticator app will generate a new six digit Time-Based One-Time Passcodes (TOTP) every 30 seconds. This passcode, which is also sometimes referred to as a "token", will be used when you login as an additional verification that you are true owner of the account, and not an intruder.

Google Authenticator is a free and popular authenticator app available on both iOS (Apple) and Android (Google), so we decided to use it for these instructions.
