How can I setup 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) on my account?

Last updated: September 17th, 2015

You've asked for it and 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) is now available to all Betcoin users. 2FA drastically increases the security of your Betcoin account by using a time-based one time password (TOTP) which is required when you login to your account.

Betcoin makes use of 2 Factor Authentication through Google Authenticator. If you do not currently have it on your Android or iOS device you can download it for free from their app stores.

To set up 2FA on your account follow these 5 steps:

Step 1

Download Google Authenticator App. You can get it for Android or iOS.

Step 2

Sign in to your Betcoin wallet and click the "Enable 2FA" button in the Security panel.

Step 3

Open your Google Authenticator App and create a new account for Betcoin by either:
a) scanning the barcode
- or -
b) entering the 16 digit secret key manually

Step 4

Confirm the One Time Password provided by Google Authenticator and click "Enable 2FA".

Step 5

Congratulations! You now have 2 Factor Authentication enabled on your account.

When you sign in you will now include this "one time password" in addition to your regular password. Keep your phone handy since this one time password changes every 30 seconds.

NOTE: Your entire main balance is protected through 2FA. As of right now your poker balance is not protected under 2FA. If you want your poker balance to be protected through 2FA you must transfer your poker balance to your main balance when you are not playing.
