How to activate two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) makes your Qonto account safer by adding a security layer to your personal password.

In order to activate 2FA, access your profile through the 'Manage account' tab in the top-right corner of your home page.


Go to the 'Sign-in & Security' tab and click on 'Activate'.


You need to install on your smartphone or tablet a two-factor authenticator application such as Google Authenticator, Authy or 1Password. Then you can scan the QR code on your screen or type in your secret key.


Once your app is set up, you're asked to enter your six-digit confirmation code.


Afterwards you'll receive your recovery key. This key will allow you to access your account in case you forget your password or lose your trusted device.


We recommend that you keep a copy of this information in a safe place and not on your computer.
