Setting up 2FA

Recommended Posts

We take your security seriously here at Heavyshelf and it's why we've implemented two-factor authentication (2FA). You don't have to use it, but we strongly recommend you do so to ensure your account is kept safe. After enabling it, a code is sent to your phone using your favorite 2FA app that you need to use to complete the login process.

This is only used when accessing the community forum from a new device, wanting to change sensetive account details like an email or password, and a few other instances. It's easy to set up (and disable if you don't like it).


How to set up 2FA

  1. Click your name in the top-right.
  2. Select "Account Settings".
  3. Choose "Account Security" from the left menu.
  4. Hit "Enable" on Google Authenticator.
  5. Scan the barcode using your favorite 2FA app (we love Authy).
  6. You're good to go!
