Two-factor authentication

Add an extra layer of security to your IG account

What is it?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an optional security feature that requires you to enter a verification code as well as your password every time you log in.

Once set up, 2FA drastically reduces the chance of unauthorised access to your account. 

How do I get it?

1. Download the 'IG Authentication' app

 

2. Activate two-factor authentication on your account

3. Enter the code with your password every time you log in
