Enable 2-Step Verification (2FA)

2-Step Verification (commonly known as two-factor authentication, or 2FA) acts as an extra layer of security for your iDeyPay Naira & Bitcoin wallets.

When sending funds out of your Naira or Bitcoin Wallet, you will need either your iDeyPay password or a one-time passcode (OTP) generated by your 2FA: printed paper codes.

Why two-factor authentication?

  • More than 99% of the attacks against you can be prevented with two-factor authentication
  • Two-factor authentication codes are very hard to steal, unlike passwords.
  • It takes only few minutes to set it up!
