As the Internet infrastructure grows in complexity, so do hackers in the sophistication of their methods. A standard login-password pair, therefore, may be not enough to keep your funds in safety. If a hacker gets access to your e-mail, your deposits might be in danger.
To prevent this from happening, we recommend you to enable two-factor authentication (also known as 2fa). It requires physical access to your device to log in, thus significantly increasing the degree of security.
You can do it as follows:
- Open the Security tab of your Account Settings and click the Enable button in the frame of App Authenticator.
- Follow the instruction proposed in the pop-up window. Please notice: codes change every 15 seconds, so you should be fast :)
Also keep in mind that you should have the time on your device synchronized via Internet: without it the technology won't work at all.
From now on, you should enter the LATOKEN code each time you sign in or withdraw tokens as your 2fa code.
- To disable 2fa you should simply click Deactivate. Please beware: the next 2fa code will be named LATOKEN as well. Do not be confused!
