Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a highly secure method that adds an extra layer of protection to your online accounts. It ensures that even if a hacker manages to crack your password, they still cannot access your accounts and steal your coins or identity. Activating 2FA is simple, and we strongly recommend enabling this feature for added security. In this article, we will guide you through the process of activating 2FA on your BC.Game account using Google Authenticator.

Step-by-Step Guide to Activate 2FA on BC.Game Account

Step 1: Download an Authentication App on Your Phone

First, download an authentication app on your smartphone. We recommend Google Authenticator, which is currently one of the best options available.

Step 2: Sign in to Your BC.Game Account

  1. Go to the BC.Game security settings page:

  2. Confirm your login password (the one you recently set).

  3. After confirming your password, you will see a QR code. Save the key securely, as you will need it later.

Step 3: Open Google Authenticator on Your Device and Scan the QR Code

Open the Google Authenticator app on your device and choose one of the following two options:

a. Scan the QR code (preferred method) OR b. Enter the secret key (useful if you are on the same device as the authenticator)

Step 4: Enter the Generated Code

After scanning the QR code or entering the secret key, Google Authenticator will generate a six-digit code. Enter this code into the provided field on the BC.Game website. Be quick, as the code is only valid for 120 seconds. After this time, the app will refresh and generate a new code.

Step 5: Check "Time Correction for Codes" in Your 2FA App

To ensure accurate code generation, check the "time correction for codes" feature in your 2FA app:

  1. In Google Authenticator, click the three dots in the top-right corner.

  2. Select "Settings."

  3. Choose "Time correction for codes."

  4. Click "Sync now."

Congratulations! Your 2FA is now activated, and your BC.Game account is more secure.

Activating two-factor authentication on your BC.Game account is a simple yet crucial step in securing your online assets and identity. By following this step-by-step guide, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your account has an added layer of protection against unauthorized access. Remember to keep your 2FA app and secret key secure to maintain the highest level of security for your account.
