Security has always been a priority for CoinSmart. In fact, it is one of the main traits that make our trading platform so user-friendly. To further bolster account security, CoinSmart has already implemented mandatory 2-factor authentication.
What is Google 2 Factor Authenticator (2FA) ?
2 Factor Authentication is a useful tool for improving the security of your account. Using the Google Authenticator app, you are able to implement a secondary password feature on your account.
Every time you log in, you will be asked to enter a six digit code displayed in the Google Authenticator app on your phone:
