25 Apr 2019

This article will show you how to secure your Copytip account by using an Authenticator app to set up Two-factor Authentication (2FA) for specific account actions.

An Authenticator app is an app that generates 2FA codes that can be used as an additional security requirement to log in your Copytip account. An Authenticator app generates a dynamic 6-8 digit one-time password (OTP) that is required in addition to your username and password when singing in. 

We recommend using Google Authenticator.
