Two factor authentication is an added layer of security to help ensure that your financial data is always secure. It is easy to set up and only requires your smartphone.
Before you get started, you'll need to download and setup either Authy or Google Authenticator.
We recommend Authy as it's a fully cloud based solution, meaning if you get a new device you won't lose any of your existing 2FA setups.
Click Setup now.
Open your authenticator app and select Begin setup.
Start a new scan by selecting Scan barcode.
If you don't have a camera phone, you can select CAN'T SCAN IT? to display a text code instead.
Once the app scans the QR code you will be returned a 6-digit code displayed in the authenticator app.
Enter this code into Figured.
You have now successfully set up two factor authentication for your Figured account.
NOTE: When setting up 2FA, you are provided a set of backup access codes. These must be saved. In the event you lose access to your authenticator app, the backup codes can be used to restore access to your Figured account.
Now when you log into your Figured account you will be asked to enter the 6-digit code displayed in the authenticator app.
A new code is generated every 20 seconds so it is important to always open the authenticator app first and enter the displayed code.
