How to set up 2FA for your Kinesis account

  • Updated

We recommend setting up 2-factor Authentication (2FA) on your account to ensure maximum security on your account.

2-factor Authentication is a security process in which the user provides two different authentication factors to verify themselves to better protect both the user’s credentials and the user’s assets.

Prior to enabling two-factor authentication, you will need an 'authenticator'. There are many supported third-party apps such as Google AuthenticatorDuo, and Microsoft Authenticator.

Once you have downloaded and set up your preferred authenticator, you're ready to begin enabling two-factor authentication on your Kinesis account.

Step 1. To set up 2FA log into your account and navigate to the settings page by clicking on the settings icon in the bottom left corner of the platform.


Step 2. You may then proceed to the Security tab, scroll down to the 2-Factor Authentication section and click “SETUP”.

Step 3. Download the authenticator app on your mobile phone, allowing you to authorise your login from a 2nd device. There are many free 3-rd party authenticator apps available on the market, with the most popular being: Google AuthenticatorDuo, and Microsoft Authenticator.
