Besides using a unique username and password, EasyEquities now offers the option of adding an additional layer of protection for your account in the form of ‘Two-Factor Authentication’, or, 2FA.
2FA is a method of authenticating you as the account holder and granting you access to your account only after you have successfully presented additional ‘evidence’ that verifies you are the rightful owner of the account.
We bring 2FA to the platform in the following way:
- The ability to use an external ‘Authenticator’ (usually an app you can download on your phone)
In addition to your unique username and password, you can now add this additional layer of protection to keep your account even more secure.
You can change these settings anytime by navigating to the top right profile menu and selecting “Two-Factor Authentication”
Please note: you will be redirected to the URL identity.openeasy.io
Here you’ll be able to change your password and add or manage your two-factor authentication set-up. By selecting “Manage Two-Factor Devices” you can register an authenticator (examples: ‘2FA Authenticator’; ‘Duo Mobile’; ‘Google Authenticator’; ‘Last Pass’; ‘Microsoft Authenticator’ etc)
