How to set up Two-Step Authentication

The purpose of Two-Step Authentication (2SA) is to improve the security of your account,  and is a common method of confirming a user's identity using a combination of two different components. Please note that setting up 2SA on your account is optional.

In our case, you will need your username and password to sign in as the first step and a one-time valid, six-digit passcode as the second step. The passcode can either be generated with the use of an authenticator app installed on a mobile device or by receiving a text message containing the passcode. 
  1. When logging into Spenda, you will be prompted to secure your account with 2SA. You can choose to either receive your code via ‘TXT Me A Code’ or ‘Use Authenticator App’.

TXT Me A Code:
  1. Click on ‘TXT Me a Code’ You will be prompted to a new screen, where you can now enter your preferred mobile number. Please note, this mobile number will receive the security codes in the future to enable log in.

  2. Once you have entered your mobile number, you will receive a text message with a 6-digit code. Please enter the code in the field specified.
  3. Click ‘Confirm’.
    2SA is now successfully enabled for your Spenda Account. Click on ‘Disable’ or ‘Remove all trusted devices’ if you wish to remove the mobile number given and connect a new mobile number. 
    If you would like to set up a second method on a different device you can click on ‘Setup’ under Use an Authenticator App. Alternatively, choose to set up 2SA using the Authenticator App as the primary option.
  4. Click ‘Done’.

Use an Authenticator App:
  1. Click on ‘Setup’ under Use an Authenticator App or ‘Use Authenticator App’ in the original 2SA ‘Secure Your Account’ screen.
  2. You will now be prompted to a new screen where you can scan a QR code.
    Please note - You will need an Authenticator app to do this. To download an app, go to your mobile’s app store, search for “authenticator app” and download either Authy, Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator.

  3. Once you have scanned the QR code, a one-off security code will be generated. Type in the code within the field specified on the screen.
    Please note - If you have trouble scanning the QR code, click ‘Can't scan the code?’ and enter the given code manually into the app.
  4. Click ‘Confirm’. 

You’re all done! If you would like to edit any of the 2SA settings or disable an existing device, click the user profile icon in the top right corner of the screen and select ‘Setup Two Step Auth’.
