Crypto-ML has added the option to enable two-factor authentication (2FA) on your account. This added security is available in anticipation of the upcoming Auto-Trade functionality. Should you intend on entering trade account information, enabling 2FA will greatly increase the security of those account details.
Once enabled, the Crypto-ML login screen will ask for your username and password, then it will ask for a one-time password from your phone’s 2FA app.
