What is Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and how can I enable it?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a simple but effective tool that provides your accounts with an extra layer of security. If a data breach occurs and someone gets ahold of your username and password, 2FA is a second step to keep them from gaining access to your account.
You can use Jumbo to enable 2FA on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Dropbox and Amazon. When you enable this setting, you will be asked to provide a 6-digit code every time you log in. If you enable 2FA with Jumbo, the codes are securely stored in your Vault for easy access when you need them and refresh every 30 seconds to ensure your security.
You can enable 2FA for accounts in Jumbo by following these steps:
- Open the Jumbo app
- Tap the icon of the service that you would like to enable 2FA for (ex. Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
- If you have not already connected this service to Jumbo enter your login credentials
- Tap the toggle next to the words Two Factor Authentication. When the toggle is shown as green, this feature is on.
Alternatively, if you run a scan on your account and see enabling 2FA appear as a recommendation card, you can enable it through there.
NOTE: It's a good idea to save your backup codes in case you ever need them to recover your account. If you haven't already, please read this article.
