What is 2FA?
When signing in for the first time to Liquid, you will be prompted to set up to 2-factor authentication.
2FA or 2-factor authentication is a method we use to verify your identity. The process requires you to verify your Liquid login details as well as an authentication code you get on an app on your smart phone.
This is optional, but you will have to set up 2FA to deposit cryptocurrency or fiat into your Liquid account.
