What is Two-Factor Authentication and Why You Should Set it UP
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a second layer of security that helps to protect your GoldCore account. When enabled, users must go through two layer of security before being granted access to their GoldCore Account.
2FA increases the security of your GoldCore account by requiring two separate validations from you, the user of the account; one being a password and the second being an unique code that is sent to you by text that you then must re-enter on our site in order to gain access. By inputting this code when logging in confirms to us that it is you that is logging into your account.
You are not required to turn on the Two Factor setting, but you are encouraged to do so. You can continue to use a “password only” access, but in doing so you should take additional care in keeping your password safe and change it often. You should also ensure that you only access your GoldCore account from a secure computer or device.
