Two-factor Authentication (2FA)
The idea of 2FA is to provide you with an additional way to verify that you are the owner of the account. Improving account security and complicating the hacking process for an attacker is necessary features if using services where you keep money and/or personal data.
We implemented two-factor authentication to our service, so now you can be sure in your online safety.
