You can protect your account with an authenticator app, this adds an extra layer of security by asking you to input a unique code sent to your mobile app every time you log in.
So long as your registered email address is secure and you don't share your 6 digit code your account will remain secure, even if a hijacker finds out your password.
Before you can enable the authenticator you'll need an authenticator app installed on your device, we recommend Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator.
- Log in to your Authenticator account settings
- Select 'Enable Authenticator'
- Open the app and scan the QR code
- If the QR code doesn’t work, click ‘Can’t scan the code?’
- Enter the 6 digit code generated by your mobile device
You're all set! Remember, if you log in to any unrecognised computers you'll need to have your mobile device with you.
