Google Authenticator provides an extra layer of security. Since the Google Authenticator app is not tied to your phone number (you'll still need a phone number associated with your CoinZoom account in order to buy or sell digital currency), you will be protected even in the event of an attacker compromising your phone number.
When using Google Authenticator for your 2-step verification codes, you will still be protected even if your password is stolen and your phone number is ported. When using Google Authenticator, the only way to generate 2-step verification codes is by physically accessing your Google Authenticator app.
Enabling the Authenticator App:
Before you begin enabling the Authenticator App, please note that enabling it will disable both SMS code delivery and Authy tokens - these will no longer work with your CoinZoom account. Disabling an Authenticator App will re-enable SMS codes.
Please download an Authenticator app before beginning this process.
Log in to your CoinZoom account using your current email, password and 2-factor authentication method.
- Navigate to Settings --> Manage Google Auth
- Follow the instructions on the screen
