What is two-factor authentication (2FA) and how is it used in NC Wallet?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an additional layer of NC Wallet security. For safety reasons, 2FA confirmation is mandatory for
- Adding/Deleting IP addresses from the Allowed and Blocked List.
Apart from this, you can enable 2FA for
- Logins in your wallet;
- Confirming exchanges;
- Setting limits for withdrawal and exchange.
You need to activate two-factor authentication during your first withdrawal if you have not already done so. To do this, NC Wallet will prompt you to install an app (for mobile devices) or an extension (for browsers). The most common apps are: for Android — Google Authenticator, and for iOS — Authenticator App. We don't recommend synchronising your Google Authenticator with the account that you use to log into your NC Wallet.
Since two-factor authentication requires more than just knowing the PIN code to access the wallet, it enhances the security of your funds.
Instead of 2FA, you can also use biometrics to sign in and confirm transactions.
