This is also known as 2FA or Two-Step Verification. It adds an extra layer of security to your account and protects sensitive operations. Once set up, it means codes will be generated and sent to an associated device or service, e.g., your phone or your email.
Guava supports two different 2FA configurations. They are:
a. Google 2FA Authentication: a one-time code that is generated on your phone and inputted upon request. You will need to install the app on your smartphone first and provide the code on it when you are required to do so on Guava.
b. Email 2FA Authentication: a one-time code sent to you via mail which you then input upon request
Both codes are time sensitive, and one or both can be configured for operations like logging in, sending coins and making changes to profile.
