Protect your account with Google Authenticator

Dear members,

We are today introducing the possibility to further secure your FX Junction accounts by activating a 2-Way Authentication by incorporating the Google Authenticator.

We recommend all members to activate this feature and particularly members with Live linked accounts - to prevent any unauthorized access.

The principle is simple: If you activate the 2-Way Authentication, you will be requested to enter the code generated by your Google Authenticator mobile app each time you log in to your account. You also have the option to remember the PC/ mobile/ tablet you're using for 30 days, only after which you will be again challenged to input the verification code.

The Google Authenticator app works on iPhone, Android and Windows Mobile.

The setup of the  2-Way Authentication on your account is simple:

  1. Go to your Profile Settings
  2. You will see a new button "2-Way Authentication" with an indication of its status - initially Inactive
  3. Click on the button and perform the 3 steps as instructed
    1. Download the Google Authenticator application in your phone (if not already installed)
    2. Scan the displayed code via the Google Authenticator app. If you have difficulties scanning the code, you can click on "Show secret code as text" and add the code manually in the Google Authenticator app (use your FX Junction account email as username)
    3. After you added the account in the app, verify the setup by inputting the generated code into the verification box and confirm

The status of the 2-Way Authentication changes to 'Active'.

The next time you log in, after you input your FX Junction username and password, you will be prompted for the Google Authenticator code. Enter the code as requested - you can also tick the 'Remember this computer for 30 days' check box as explained above and confirm.

That's it. You can now enjoy an even safer Social Trading experience of FX Junction! smile
