How to setup 2-step 2FA login

You can enable 2 factor authentication for your Vestd account to add an additional level of security.

Two factor login is available to all users and can be turned on at any point from your profile page.

To use two factor login you will need a mobile app such as Google Authenticator or Authy, this will then be needed every time you log into your Vestd account. This ensures that even if your login details are compromised nobody can gain access without your mobile device.

 

To setup 2-step login please follow the following steps.

First go to your details page by clicking your name in the top right of the Vestd app.

You will then be given a QR code to scan using the mobile app.

Once you have scanned the code and setup Vestd in the mobile app you will need to type in the generated 6 digit code to confirm the details are correct.
