Step 1: To set up Google 2FA, you must download the “Google Authenticator” app. You can download the app from the IOS store or Google play store.
Step 2: When you have your “Google Authenticator” ready, log in to your account, click “Account Settings” from the left dashboard. Then click “Security”, you will find the “Google Authenticator” at the bottom. Simply click on “Enable” and follow the instructions to set up Google 2FA.
Step 3: Open your Google authenticator app, scan the QR code, it will generate a 6-digit code or “Token”, enter the code to confirm, this code is updated every 30 seconds. The Google authentication key is used only when you are not able to scan the QR code.
Please note that it is a good practice to keep a copy of the Google authenticator key in a secure location, if you happen to misplace the Google authenticator you can use the Google authenticator key to recover it.
