What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is an additional security layer to your password. With 2FA enabled on your account, you will have to provide your 2FA code when performing certain actions on the app.

How does TOTP works?

Crypto.com is using Time-based One-time Password (TOTP) for Two-Factor Authentication, it involves generating a temporary, unique one-time 6-digit code that only works for 30 seconds. To perform any actions that will affect your assets, you will need to enter this code besides the common password.

Which actions on the Crypto.com app can enable 2FA?

  • Send crypto to other app users 
  • Crypto withdrawal 
  • Wallet address whitelist

Which authenticators should I use?

Providing strong security and great user experience are always our top priorities. there’s a great authenticator we would like to recommend to you - Authy. 

Authy is not only supporting generating a time-dependent 6-digit code like other authenticators in the market, but also offering the following features:

How to disable/enable my 2FA?

You can disable 2FA temporarily by simply toggling off in Settings. Please note that disabling doesn’t mean reset so please keep your key secure. Reset 2FA should only be used if you no longer have access to your authenticator. It makes your authentication key registered no longer available, meaning you need to go through the process of Setting Up 2FA when you re-enable 2FA.
