HOW TO ENABLE FACE ID AND 2FA ON VIBRA
Updated: Feb 22
Before you invest in or acquire cryptocurrency, you should first consider the best ways to protect your assets. There are many ways to hack and get around user data privacy and password authentication. Therefore, two-factor authentication (2FA) is highly recommended as a higher level of asset security.
What Is 2FA? Two-factor authentication, or 2FA, is how you protect your account with two steps, or layers. By adding an extra layer of security, you can better protect your assets. Usually, the first layer of protection on a crypto wallet or account is the user’s login password. It has been noted that a lot of passwords can be guessed, especially by people close to the account owner. Therefore, the 2FA is an extra layer to reduce third-party access to your assets. When you enable 2FA, a minimum of two layers must be unlocked before gaining access to your account.
User login password
A randomly generated password, which could be an OTP sent as SMS, as email, or obtained from a random password generator.
Password generator app commonly used for authentication includes Google Authenticator, Authy, etc.
