2FA adds an additional layer of verification beyond just an email or password. Anyone attempting to login to your account on Request Finance will be required to provide a one-time code sent to your phone using an app like Google Authenticator.
Even if a hacker were to obtain your email and password, they’d need access to your device with the authenticator app installed, making it nearly impossible to complete the login process to your account on Request Finance.
The numbers show that 2FA works. In 2019, Google reported that its 2FA successfully blocked 100% of automated bots, 96% of bulk phishing attacks, and 90% of targeted attacks. In 2020, Microsoft also highlighted that 99.9% of compromised accounts it tracked didn’t use multifactor authentication.
How Do I Enable 2FA in Request Finance?
If you don’t already use Google Sign-In to login to Request Finance, you should enable 2FA for all your accounts on Request Finance.
Click on “Settings” in the left sidebar menu.
Within the “Settings” page, you should see a tab labeled “Security”.
Under “Security”, you should see an option allowing you to “Add 2FA”.
It should prompt you for your one-time code for every new browser or device you login with.
2FA is a simple, effective way to keep your account secure from hackers.
Even in the unlikely event that 2FA were to fail, our non-custodial design means that your funds remain safe, as your private keys are not stored anywhere on the platform.
Safeguarding users is an important part of our mission to make crypto payments easier, safer, and better for enterprises.
