Here is an easy to follow how-to guide for setting up 2-Step Verification for your mobile device:



  1. Sign in to the Uphold app.

    • If you’re a current Uphold member using Authy, you’ll be asked to enter the 7-digit verification code from Authy to begin the setup process.
  3. Download (or open) your preferred authentication app.
