Enable two-factor authentication

At a time when almost everything is going online, security is more important than ever. This is also reflected in banks, (crypto) exchanges and, for example, your email. With everything that is important or that involves money, there is a lot of emphasis on security. However, this has not been the case with Earth 2 until now. The team probably did not think that so much money (approx. 100 million dollars) would flow in in a short time.

After people spontaneously started investing large amounts of money, the demand for better security soon arose. Until now, a login name and password was sufficient to gain access to an account. This is very unusual and unsafe, and fortunately it was therefore a high priority for the developers. And today is the day, 2FA is a fact.

How does two-factor authentication (2FA) work
With 2FA there is an extra layer of security before you can log in. Nowadays you usually receive a code by SMS that you have to enter. Or you have to generate a code in an app on your phone. The latter variant is used in Earth 2. We will explain how it works below:

Time needed: 15 minutes.

With 2FA there is an extra layer of security before you can log in. Nowadays you usually receive a code by SMS that you have to enter. Or you have to generate a code in an app on your phone. The latter variant is used in Earth 2. We will explain how it works below:

  1. Install the Authy or Google Authenticator app on your phone.

  2. Go to your Earth 2 account – settings

  3. Go to “open 2fa prefences” (they probably mean “preferences” …)

  4. Click on “Enable Two-Factor Authentication”

  5. Click on “Next”

  6. You will see the screen below

    Open one of the already installed apps on your phone (Google Authenticator or Authy). Open the “add account” function, and scan the QR code on your screen. The app will display a code that you must enter in the Token window. Click on “Next”

  7. 2FA is now set!

    When logging in you will be asked for a 2FA code. Open Google Authenticator or Authy on your phone, and click on the Earth 2 logo. You will now see a code that changes every 30 seconds. Enter this code to login to Earth 2.

  8. Backup tokens

    You can keep backup tokens. This allows you to access your account when you no longer have access to your 2FA app. For example, when you lose your phone. You also have the option to turn 2FA off again.

  9. Option to turn off FA again

    You also have the option to turn 2FA off again. (NOT ADVICED!)
