How do I set up Two-Factor Authentication using the Uphold mobile app? (Mobile App previous to 4.0 version)


Here is an easy to follow how-to guide for setting up Two-Factor Authentication for your mobile device:



  1. Sign in to the Uphold app.
  2. When you sign in, you’ll be prompted to configure the new Two-Factor Authentication method (2FA). You can also set up 2FA from the app settings menu (under “Security’).
    • 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.
  4. Scan the QR code or enter the key provided in the Uphold app to set up a new account in your authentication app.
  5. Once your Uphold account is added, reopen the Uphold mobile app, enter the 6-digit verification code from your new authentication app, and click ‘next’ to verify.

Important note: you will be given a key for your new authentication method. Make sure this is stored in a safe place as you will not have access to it later.
