How do I set up Two-Factor Authentication using the Uphold web app?

  1. Sign in to your Uphold account.
  2. When you sign in, you’ll be prompted to configure the new Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) method. You can also set up 2FA from your account settings (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 your preferred authentication app.
  4. Scan the QR code or enter the key provided in the Uphold web app to set up a new account in your authentication app.
  5. Once your Uphold account is added, return to the Uphold web app, enter the 6-digit 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.

Here is an easy to follow how-to guide for setting up Two-Factor Authentication from the Uphold web app:
