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 iOS app, or by using one of our recommended two-factor apps:

To get started, make sure you have one of the above downloaded on your phone, log in to your account online as usual, and select ‘Two-factor authentication’ from the My account menu.

You’ll then be shown a QR code, which you need to scan with your chosen app. It 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.
