Chip offers two-factor authentication to help keep your account even more secure. When enabled, two-factor authentication requires you to input a unique code during account login. This means that only you can access your account, even if someone knows your password.
In just three steps, you can quickly add two-factor authentication:
1. Download Google Authenticator
First, download Google Authenticator on your mobile phone.
2. Turn on two-factor authentication
Go to Settings > Security to access the setup page. Switch the feature to Enabled by clicking the button next to Disabled. A QR code will be generated.
3. Scan your QR code and submit the six-digit code
With your Google Authenticator app opened on your phone, scan the QR code. Google Authenticator will display an authentication code. On the Settings > Security page, enter the 6-digit code into the box provided, and click “Enable.”
And you’re done!
The next time you log in to Chip, you’ll notice a second layer of security has been added. Chip will ask for your Google Authenticator code.
Revisit your Google Authenticator phone app and locate the six-digit code from the main screen.
