Therefore, to ensure the safety of their accounts, Binance users often choose Google Authenticator 2-layer (2FA Verification) security. The following article provides detailed instructions on using Google Authenticator on Binance and answers all frequently asked questions to make it more convenient for users to use this application.
What is 2FA Google Authenticator Security?
Google Authenticator (2FA) is an application from Google that generates security verification codes to log in to your Binance account. When using Binance, users need to enter a code in the Google Authenticator app to log in or make a deposit/withdrawal, or trade-in crypto.
The Google Authenticator Code consists of 6 random numbers automatically generated by the Google Authenticator application and is only valid for 30 seconds. Every 30 seconds, the application will generate a new code to ensure that hackers do not compromise the verification code.
Reasons to use Google Auth on Binance
Google Authenticator changes the Code continuously every 30 seconds to increase the account’s security. Google Authenticator is a reputable, stable, easy-to-use, and quick-install platform.
In addition, by just opening the Google Authenticator application, the user can receive the Code, so there is no error of not receiving the Code like when using the security feature by SMS or email.
