Two-factor authentication uses two ways to verify your identity whenever you sign in to your FXOpen account:
- Your password
- An extra security code
It is to secure your account from violators by using both your password and your smartphone.
Two-factor authentication helps protect your account by making it more difficult for a hacker to sign in, even if they’ve somehow learned your password.
If you turn on two-factor authentication, you’ll see an extra page every time you sign in My FXOpen.
The extra page prompts you to enter a security code to sign in. FXOpen can send a new security code to your phone, or you can obtain one through the authenticator application on your smartphone.

First, choose how you like to receive your security codes.
