Click the icon on the upper lefthand side to access the Sidebar, then click on "+Add Authenticator Account".

This will lead you to the screen below. Click on the "Enter key manually" link, found at the bottom of the screen.

Go to the screen and click "Show secret." You will then be given an Account Name and a Key:

Enter the Key and Account Name into Authy.

 You will then be provided with a 6-digit verification code.


The app will immediately generate a 6-digit verification code for your account. Enter this code into the screen, then click "Verify."



This code changes every 30 seconds (you will know it is about to change based on the timer below the number that says "Expires in __ seconds"). 

Whenever you log on to your user account, you will be asked, first to enter your user email and password, and then to provide the latest verification code generated by Authy.
