What is it?

2FA, 2-factor authentication or 2-step verification is an extra layer of security to prove that anyone trying to gain access to an online account is who they say they are. It is an additional step beyond entering your username and password for any online account.

Why should I enable it?

Enabling 2FA on your PayPlux account comes with these benefits:

  1. Prevent unauthorised access to your Prepaid and Cash-Out Wallets
  2. Authenticate all transactions with your Prepaid Wallet
  3. Authenticate all withdrawals from your Cash-Out Wallet
  4. Authenticate transfers from your Cash-Out Wallet to your Prepaid Wallet

How to Activate It?

The 2FA on PayPlux works in two ways: SMS authentication or Google Authenticator. Whichever one you choose will be what you use each time you log in to PayPlux henceforth. To set up your 2FA, visit this link: app.payplux.com/dashboard/settings/security
