2FA stands for "two-factor authentication," which is a security feature that adds an extra layer of protection to your PointsBet account. With 2FA enabled, you will need to provide two forms of authentication to access your account, such as a password and a unique code sent to your mobile device.
Enabling 2FA on PointsBet is important because it helps prevent unauthorized access to your account. By requiring a second form of authentication, even if someone manages to obtain your login credentials, they will not be able to access your account without also having access to your mobile device.
To enable 2FA on PointsBet, follow these steps:
- Log in to your PointsBet account.
- Click on the "My Account" icon located in the top right-hand corner of the homepage.
- Select "Security" from the list of options.
- Click on the "Two-Factor Authentication" tab.
- Follow the prompts to enable 2FA using either a mobile authenticator app or text message.
Note: It's important to keep your 2FA device or phone number up-to-date to ensure you can still access your account if you ever need to authenticate your identity.
