We use Google authenticator and SMS verification as our 2FA. We strongly recommend our users to apply for both options to strengthen your account security and protect your account against hackers.
To turn on 2FA,
Step 1: Go to Hashnest official website.
Step 2: Click at the top right hand corner of the website then “Sign in”.
Step 3: Log in to your Hashnest account
Step 4: Click at the top right hand corner of the website again then “Profile”.
Step 5: Set up your Google Authenticator and link your mobile number to your Hashnest account if you had not done so.
Step 6: Click “Set” at the Two-factor Authentication Login to turn on 2FA. The default mode of 2FA uses Google Authenticator, even if you had done both SMS and Google Authenticator.
If you would like to turn off 2FA, simply click “Set” again to switch off. You will once again asked to key in verification codes before you switch off. We do not advise our users to switch off 2FA as it weakens account security.
