How to enable 2FA for Gemini
Want to follow this guide on your phone?
Powered By Authy
2FA at Gemini is powered by the Authy 2FA API. This means you use the free Authy app to get your 2FA token and login to Gemini. The Authy app can be used for all your 2FA accounts and you can sync them across multiple devices, even accessing them on the desktop.
To enable 2FA with Gemini, start by Installing Authy on your device or by searching for it in your device’s app store and then continue with this guide.
Important: If any sites prompt you to use Google Authenticator for two-factor authentication, note that you can always substitute the Authy 2FA app instead. Although they work in similar ways, Authy is more feature-rich and allows for multi-device syncing, cloud-backups, and easier account recovery should you change or lose your phone or device.
