Two-factor authentication

What is two-factor authentication (or 2FA)?

Two-factor authentication is an enhanced protection for your account.

To activate 2FA in @AnyCashBot you can:

- add email;

- or add a Google Authenticator account.

‍

How to set up two-factor authentication in @AnyCashBot?

Option 1. Setting up 2FA by means of an email.

1. In the 🛠 Settings section, select 🔒 Two-factor authentication → E-mail.

2. Enter your email;

3. Enter the code sent to your email;

4. Email has been added successfully. Now it is enough to go to the 🔒 Two-factor authentication section again and click Enable E-mail.‍

Done!

‍

Option 2. Setting up 2FA by means of Google Authenticator.

1. You need to install the Google Authenticator application on your phone:

- download on Android;

- download on IOS (available for iPhone and iPad)

2. In @AnyCashBot, go to the 🛠 Settings section; select 🔒 Two-factor authentication → Add a new Google Auth account.

3. Next, in the bot itself, you need to enter the name of the account (you choose the name yourself). After that, a new account will be created.

4. In Google Authenticator on your smartphone, tap on ➕ → Enter the setup key. Enter your account name and 16-digit secret key (generated by the bot).

5. After successful account registration, copy the 6-digit code generated in the application. Go back to @AnyCashBot and enter this code.

The 6-digit code is not permanent and has a short duration (usually 20 or 30 seconds) and is kept only in the program.

6. Google Authenticator account has been added successfully. Now it is enough to go to the 🔒 Two-factor authentication section again and click Enable Google Auth account.

Done!

@AnyCashBot has the ability to add multiple Google Authenticator accounts, as well as remove existing ones.

❗Be careful, because if you lose your phone, delete your Google Authenticator account, or delete the application itself, access to two-factor authentication will be lost (see Lost access).
