You can either use Google Authenticator/Authy/any other Authenticator or SMS Authentication.

2. Open your 2FA application and either use the phone camera to scan the QR code or enter the code manually. 


3. Please wait for a new code to be generated and insert it in the "Enter the Two-Step Authentication code" section and click on the "Verify code".

4. Your 2FA Authentication security feature is activated.


If you prefer to set the 2FA Authentication using the SMS code, please click on the "Alternative Authentication Methods"


In the window which opens after you click on the "Enable" button, please choose the country, provide your phone number and click on the "Verify" button. 


Please note, that the speed of SMS verification varies from country to country. For instant codes and additional security, please use an app like Authy for the two-step codes.
