Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your account by requiring not only your password but also a verification code from an authentication app. Follow these steps to set up 2FA after logging into our system.

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Log In to Your Account
- Enter your username and password as usual to log in.

2. Access the 2FA Setup Page
- After logging in, you will be directed to the 2FA setup page where you will see a QR code displayed.

3. Download Google Authenticator
- If you don’t have an authentication app installed, we recommend downloading Google Authenticator.
- For Android Users: Open the Google Play Store, search for "Google Authenticator," and install the app.
- For iOS Users: Open the App Store, search for "Google Authenticator," and install the app.

4. Open Google Authenticator
- Once installed, open the Google Authenticator app on your mobile device.

5. Scan the QR Code
- In the Google Authenticator app, tap on the "+" button or "Set up account."

- The app will automatically add your account and generate a 6-digit verification code.

6. Enter the Verification Code
- Back on the 2FA setup page, you will see a field labeled "Verify Code" or similar.
- Enter the 6-digit code generated by the Google Authenticator app into the verification field.
- Note that this code changes every 30 seconds, so make sure to enter it promptly.

7. Complete the Setup
- After entering the code, click on the "Verify" or "Submit" button to complete the 2FA setup.
- You should see a confirmation message indicating that 2FA has been successfully enabled for your account.

Tips for Using 2FA

- Regularly Update Your Authentication App: Ensure that your authentication app is up to date to benefit from the latest security features.
- Secure Your Mobile Device: Since your 2FA codes are generated on your mobile device, make sure it is secured with a strong password or biometric authentication.
- Keep Backup Codes Handy: Backup codes are crucial if you lose your device or uninstall the app by accident.
