Enable Google Account 2FA

Creating a trusted account is a careful process that involves building up history overtime on a good quality account. That trust is not something that happens in an instant or overnight. Enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on your Account is an important step you will need to take in order to have success with building that trust. Enabling 2FA is a process that cannot be automated and something you will have to do manually. 2FA works best with the Google Authenticator App or Bitwarden Premium. Due to a recent update, you will first need to add a phone number to the Account before you can enable the Authenticator app. I explain how to enable 2FA below, or you can read this article on it. 

  1. Download the Authenticator App (iPhone or Andriod), Bitwarden Premium or a 2FA software of your choice to be ready.
  2. Open OneClick, go to the account you want to enable 2FA on and press the eye Icon.
