During the last few years, the number of hacker attacks on user accounts of financial services is steadily increasing. This is due to the active development and improvements of the industry and a low level of computer education of users.

This function provides additional protection for your account.

We strongly recommend that you activate two-factor authentication - 2FA

Enabling 2FA on Kuna

To enable 2FA go to Account - Settings - Security.

Click "Enable" next to the Authenticator window, the following window will appear:

ATTENTION!

Save the Secret Code in a place accessible only to you. The secret code is required later, for example, after the loss or change of a mobile device, to transfer the authentication data to a new device.

Next, you need to install an application for two-factor authentication on your smartphone. We recommend Google Authenticator.

Google Authenticator

Install the Google Authenticator application on your smartphone

Next, click in the application Scan a QR code, and point the smartphone camera at the QR code issued on the 2FA activation page, or click in the application Enter a setup key and enter the secret code issued on the 2FA activation page. You will be given a 6-digit password code, which is updated and active every 30 seconds, it must be inserted into the Enter your 2FA verification code window on the 2FA activation page, then click Activate.

Done! Now confirmation of any operations will occur using the code provided by this application.

Authy 2FA

Install the Authy app on your phone

Open it and connect your phone number and email. This is necessary so that you can restore access if you will lose your smartphone.

After registration, click "Add account" button

Scan the QR code that we just saw above in the Kuna 2fa security settings.

After scanning the QR code, enter the 6-digit code generated by the application in the Enter your 2FA authentication code field and click Activate

Done! Now the confirmation of any operations will take place using a code in this application.

To avoid problems - put in the sync and backup settings. So your data will be in the cloud and even if you lose your smartphone, you can easily recover the two-factor code. (but we still recommend using Google Authenticator)
