Two Factor Authentication (2FA)
Besides using a username and password, Cryptohopper also offers the option to secure your account with 2 Factor Authentication (2FA). We highly recommend using either Google Authenticator or YubiKey to have an extra layer of security on your account.
Click on "Two Factor Authentication" as shown on the screenshot above. You will see two options; Google Authentication and YubiKey. When you click on one of the two, you will see a guide on setting up the 2FA. Make sure to write down the security codes somewhere that will be created next to the 2FA setup. If you lose your device, you will always get your authentication method working again without a hassle. If you haven't written down the backup codes, then you will have to send an email to all exchanges and Cryptohopper with the question to remove the 2FA from your account. So do write the codes down. When using Google Authenticator, please read the following information. For YubiKey, the authorization method used is One Time Password (OTP). Cryptohopper can be contacted through the chat or by mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
