No time to read? Watch the quick tutorial below!

We’ll walk you though it, step by step.

What Is the Point of 2FA?

Two-factor authentication is an extra layer of security that companies use to protect users’ from digital fraud.

Also called Two-Step Verification, it requires not only a password and username but also something that only the user has on them, such as an additional device and generated code.

Why Are We Using It?

We are all about data ownership and security at Permission. They are two of the foundational values that drive everything we do. That is why 2FA is required to ensure that no one but you can access your personal data or your Permission wallet.

How To Set Up 2FA?

Here are the 7 steps to setting up 2FA protection, so you can get back to earning Permission tokens!

  1. Click on “Profile” or “Test Wallet” in the Permission menu.
  2. For easiest setup, it is HIGHLY recommended that you log in to Permission from a computer, and download a 2FA app on your smartphone.
  3. Download either Google Authenticator or Authy.
  4. Open your selected 2FA application and follow the on-screen instructions for adding a new site. The easiest way to add Permission to your authenticator app is by scanning the QR code displayed on your Permission screen.
  5. Next, make sure you write down or take a photo of your key!! It is the ONLY way to get back into your account, should you ever get locked out.
  6. Now, go back to your 2FA app and you’ll see a 6 digit code. For added security, this code changes every 30 to 40 seconds. Quickly enter it on your Permission screen.
  7. NICE! Now your Permission wallet and personal information are protected by two-factor authentication. Get back to watching and earning!

Still Having Trouble?

If you experience issues setting up Google Authenticator, go into the app’s settings and make sure that you have selected “Time correction for codes.”
