WazirX launches Two-Factor Authentication for Authenticator Apps

Indian cryptocurrency exchange WazirX has introduced Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for authenticator apps on its platform today. WazirX currently processes 2FA through mobile/email, but users will now have the option to use authenticator apps such as Google Authenticator and Authy.  The exchange introduced this feature after seeing demand within their user community. 

WazirX users can easily start using 2FA through authenticator apps through the account settings. Once you select ‘Authenticator App’ and enter the OTP received on mobile/email, you are ready to set up the authenticator. We request uses to save their recovery code in a unique place so that you can access it if you lose or change your phone. You can refer to the detailed steps on the WazirX support page

2FA through authenticator apps is one the most trusted security practices in the cryptocurrency space. It is also one of the smartest ways to secure your exchange account and it is good to see WazirX offering this option to its users. We hope you make the most of it!
