Two factor authentication is incredibly important for securing your account. It is also easy to sign up for and use.
First, download the Authy app
We elected to use Authy as our one touch 2fa provider. To activate one touch authentication, you will first have to install the Authy app on your mobile device.
Then, enroll in 2fa on Nifty Gateway
Make sure you are logged in to your Nifty Gateway. Then, navigate to the 2fa page on Nifty Gateway.
Enter the phone number of the mobile device you are looking to enroll with, and then click ‘Enroll Number’.
You will get a text message with your enrollment code. Enter the code to complete enrollment.
Then, you will see a screen with two radio buttons. Click both to ‘on’, and confirm your new settings on the Authy app.
What does turning on 2fa for Nifty transfer events do?
If you enable the 2fa for Nifty transfers, then every time you list a Nifty for sale, withdraw a Nifty, send a Nifty to someone else or accept a bid on a Nifty, you will have to confirm the action with a one touch confirmation on the Authy app.
Without 2fa for Nifty transfers enabled, an attacker who gets access to your Nifty Gateway access token will be able to withdraw your nifties and steal them. Enabling 2fa for all Nifty transfers is a crucial step for securing your nifties.
