Security codes via Google Authenticator

You can choose to receive verification codes in the Google Authenticator app.

To activate Google Authenticator

  1. Click Enable in the Google Authenticator section of Settings/Profile  Authentication Methods.

  2. Choose your type of smartphone. Click the image and follow the instructions to install the Google Authenticator mobile app.

  3. Tap Scan Barcode in the application. Scan the QR code displayed on the Account Security page. If you failed to scan the QR code, a new code will be generated. 

    If you cannot scan the QR code, click Having troubles scanning code, and then enter the key manually.
  4. The Google Authenticator app will start generating security codes. Security codes are time-based and change with time.

    Enter the code generated in the app.

To successfully use Google Authenticator (GA), the time on the device running the app must be correct. 
Normally GA relies upon the device time to generate security codes. The Android version provides the
 TimeSync feature to solve the problem when the time on the device is significantly inaccurate. 
To get valid codes, set the date and time on your device correctly.
  1. Enter the PIN code for your Main account, and then click Verify.

To deactivate Google Authenticator

  1. Click Disable in the Google Authenticator section of Settings/Profile  Authentication Methods.
