How do I enable two-factor authentication on my coins.ph account using Google Authenticator?

Also called 2FA or two-step verification. It’s another security protocol that adds an added layer of security to your account. We highly recommend enabling 2FA for your account, as this makes your account very secure.

To set up your 2-Factor Authentication for your Coins.ph account, follow the steps below:

 How to enable two-factor authentication on your coins.ph account: 

1. Download and install the Google Authenticator app.

Head over to the App Store/Google Play Store and download Google Authenticator. It takes seconds to install. Try it out!

2. Go to your coins.ph Account Settings page, and click "Enable." 

Log in to your coins.ph account, and click your email address on the upper right corner then choose settings (or go to https://coins.ph/app/settings/account).

 Look under "Two-Factor Authentication" and click the "Edit" button.

You will be redirected to a page with a QR code, similar to this:

3. Open your authenticator app and add an entry.

If using the QR code option on Google Authenticator:

Open the Google Authenticator app on your smartphone and click on the "edit" button (pencil icon on the upper righthand side).

Click the "+" button at the bottom of the screen.

This will bring you to a screen with two options: "Scan barcode," and "Manual entry." Click "Scan barcode," then capture the QR code on the coins.ph page with your phone camera. 

The app will immediately generate a 6-digit verification code for your account. This code changes every 30 seconds (you will know it is about to change when the font turns red and starts blinking). 

That’s it, you’re done! Now, next time you log in to your Coins.ph account, after you enter your password, you’ll need to input the randomly generated code by your Authy/Google Authenticator app before gaining access. Since the code’s randomly generated, it’d be extremely difficult to guess it. 

Got it? Click here to try it now!
