How To Enable Authy 2FA For Binance Withdrawals
If you buy, sell, or otherwise trade cybercurrencies today, you may have heard of Binance. Named by combining the terms ‘binary’ and ‘finance,’ Binance is the fastest growing exchange for trading bitcoin, alt-coin, and other assets. It’s popular because its available in many languages, has a clean and intuitive user interface, and process orders at extremely high speeds.
But what we like best is how Binance embraces user security. While you can open an account and make a trade with just a password, you must have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled to make a withdrawal.
In an effort to not overwhelm users during the set-up process, Binance offers two types of 2FA to choose from: SMS-based, and a software-based authentication app (specifically, Google Authenticator). The inherent risks of SMS-based 2FA will drive those who want extra strong security to select the 2FA app. But what they may not know is that even though Binance promotes Google Authenticator, the Authy 2FA app can be used instead.
Why Use Authy Instead Of Google Authenticator?
Authy and Google Authenticator work along the same security principles, so remember that you can use Authy anywhere where you are instructed to download and enable Google Authenticator. And feature-rich Authy offers many advantages that Google Authenticator doesn’t have, including:
An easier-to-use interface
Multi-device sync so you can use 2FA with iOS or Android devices, or from a Desktop
Cloud-back ups to prevent account lockouts
Easy account recovery if you lose or change your device. (It’s painful to restore Google Authenticator accounts).
Step-by-Step Guide to Securing Your Binance Account With Authy 2FA
First, when you initially log into Binance, a pop-up will appear prompting you to enable 2FA with Google Authenticator. Again, for purposes of this step-by-step guide, we’re using Authy instead of Google Auth.
If you’ve already opened a Binance account but didn’t set up 2FA, you may see the dashboard itself. If this is the case, take a look at the lower right corner. That’s where you’ll see the prompt for Google Authenticator. Click the “Enable” button to get started.
Next, you’ll be prompted to download the 2FA app. If you’re already a loyal Authy user, you can skip this step. Otherwise, you can download Authy for IOS, Android, and Desktop here.
Scanning The Binance QR Code With The Authy App
After downloading Authy and clicking “Next Step,” you will be shown a QR code that you will need to scab with the Authy app. Launch Authy on your phone while you leave this page open. On your device’s Authy app, locate and click the ‘Add Account’ button at the bottom.
When you’re ready, point your device’s camera at the QR code displayed on your computer and click “Scan QR Code.” Authy will automatically set up a Binance 2FA token.
Once the QR code is properly scanned, Authy will ask you to name your Binance account. After doing so, click ‘Done.’ FYI: When a Binance logo is added to Authy, this process will be automatic.
You will now see a Binance 2FA account in your Authy app and a 6-digit numeric token that refreshes every 30 seconds.
