How do I set up two-factor authentication?
It’s easy to set up two-factor authentication on your AJ Bell Youinvest account. You can do it with our latest AJ Bell Youinvest app for iOS or Android, or by using one of our recommended two-factor apps:
- For Android, iOS, and Blackberry: Google Authenticator
- For Android and iOS: Duo Mobile
- For Windows Phone: Authenticator
To get started, make sure you have one of the above downloaded on your phone. Then log in to your account, and from the ‘My account’ menu, click ‘Update my details’, then ‘Two-factor authentication’ from the left-hand menu.
Then click on ‘Register your phone now’. You’ll be shown a QR code, which you’ll need to scan with your chosen app. This will generate a 6-digit code – just enter the code, and two-factor authentication will be set up on your account.
You’ll also be given a set of back up codes, which allow you to log in if you don’t have access to your phone for any reason. You should download these and keep them in a safe place.
You can remove two factor authentication at any time.
