2-Step Verification adds an extra layer of security to your account. It helps keep your information safe by requiring not only your password but also a second way to prove it's really you. This makes it way harder for anyone else to get into your account, even if they know your password. Adding this extra step makes your account more secure and helps protect your important stuff.

Now, let's walk through how to set it up!

Setting Up 2-Step Verification

  1. Go to My Profile. Find 2-Step Verification and choose "Set Up."
  2. Start the Setup. Read the info and tap "Get started." If you're not ready, choose "Set up later."

3. Choose Verification Method. Pick how you want to get your code: by text/call or using an Authenticator App. Click "Next."
