You’ll find a link to set up two factor authentication in your account settings. You can find that if you go to your user profile and find the dropdown under your avatar. Click “account settings.”

When you click the two-factor-authentication link, you’ll be provided with a QR code or a text and numerical code to do your signup.

Our 2FA uses only the Google Authenticator app.

Follow the instructions to set up 2FA. Make sure to save your emergency codes in case you get locked out as we might not be able to help you with this if you don’t. The email address, here, should be the email address you use for your account on this website.

After you successfully set up 2fa, when you log in, you’ll encounter the 2FA form where you’ll enter the six-digit code provided by the Google Authenticator app. Once you’ve entered six digits, the form should automatically submit and then log you in.
