Setting up your 2-Factor Authentication

When you have made it to your dashboard, a pop up window will appear notifying you with a message about the low security on your account. We strongly recommend every user to complete the 2-Factor Authentication to increase your account’s security level.

What is 2-FA Authentication?: 2-FA is a simple, yet very effective strategy to enhance the security of your account on many platforms and apps, in this case we will be using it for our Binance Exchange account. 2-FA basically sends its users a rotating code that is required to log in, only the owner of the account will receive the code.

Log into your Binance account and hit the ‘Security’ button on the left side of the interface.

Locate ‘Google Authentication’ and hit the button ‘On’.

Once you have linked the Authenticator with your exchange, enter the 6-digit code that will be generated from the Google app into the ‘Google verification code’ in the Binance app, and hit the ‘Send Code’ button to receive your email verification code for setting up the 2-FA.


After filling in the both codes, hit the yellow ‘Submit’ button.
