For an introduction to two-factor authentication (2FA), please read our Help Centre article about what 2FA is. Your cryptocurrency is valuable. Protecting it with 2FA is strongly recommended. Here’s how to set it up for your Luno wallet.

1. Open the Luno app and sign-in

2. Tap Profile from the Menu

3. Go to Security and tap Two-factor authentication

4. Follow the next steps 

You’ll also need to set up an authentication app for your mobile device. Choose between Google Authenticator or Authy application on your phone. Get them here:

Now that you’ve installed your authenticator app, scan the QR code in your Security settings on the Luno app. An alternative method is to copy your recovery code from Luno and paste it into your authenticator app. Your authenticator app should now display a six-digit one-time code. Enter this code in the Luno app to finish the setup. Two-factor authentication is now enabled. From now on, when you sign-in to Luno or do transactions, we’ll ask you for your 6-digit authentication code. Simply open your authenticator app to find the code. If you ever lose or replace your phone, you can set up your authenticator app again with your recovery code, migrate your authenticator settings with Authy or, do an account recovery.
