How to enable 2FA for NordPass
Want to follow this guide on your phone?
The best way to manage all your 2FA accounts is to use the Authy app. It enables you to have a single mobile app for all your 2FA accounts and you can sync them across multiple devices, even accessing them on the desktop. Install Authy on your device by searching for it in your device’s app store.
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.

When logged into your NordPass account, click on the “Settings” tab at the bottom of the left-hand navigation.
Then in the right hand content area, scroll down till you find the “security” section. To the right of “Two-factor Authentication,” click “ENABLE.”
In the pop-up, enter your NordPass Master Password. Then click “Continue.”
The next screen will prompt you to enable your authenticator app by capturing a QR code. Keep this window open as you reach for your phone.
To capture the QR code, launch Authy on your device. Click ‘Add Account’ at the bottom of the screen.
You’ll be prompted to hold your phone up to your computer to ‘Scan QRCode’ and capture the QR code on the NordPass app.
Once the QR code is captured, Authy will display your Nordpass account with the appropriate icon. If you desire you can also change the logo or the nickname you give the account right on the Authy app. When ready, click ‘Save’.
Once you save, the Authy app will generate a numeric ‘token’ associated with your NordPass account.
Return to NordPass and click “continue.”
Note the 6 digit code displayed on your Authy 2FA app and enter this code in the entry field as shown. Click Next.
Now your NordPass account is secured with 2FA. From now on, you will need to use the Authy app when you login.
