Setting up 2FA within Apex Trader is an extremely simple process that brings a heightened layer of security to your account.
To set up, simply click on your account at the top right and select My Account
Once you're on the account page you will see the option to enable Multi-Factor Authentication
Once you have clicked the enable slider, click Update. This will bring up another screen requesting you log back in to complete the process. This is an extra layer of security to ensure whoever is attempting to set up 2FA on the account knows the password to the account itself.
Once you've logged back in you will be greeted with the confirmation and links to the Google and Apple app stores. Select your preferred store and complete the download of your preferred 2FA app.
For our example, we will use Google Authenticator. Once you have clicked 'I'd rather use Google Authenticator you will see the following screen
On the Google Authenticator app on your phone simply select the Red Plus and then select the Scan Barcode option
Once you have scanned the barcode you will see your App now has a code to use with Apex. (this will keep changing after x amount of seconds). You can now input this code into the box where it says Enter your passcode here.
This completes the setup of 2FA on your account
Once logging in with 2FA enabled you can request the browser you are logging in to, to be remembered which will allow you to have a longer session timer. Simply tick the checkbox.
