How to Turn On 2FA for Coinbase

Please note: Specific instructions for enabling 2FA are subject to change without notice. Please check with each website or app for the most up-to-date information on this feature.

Two-factor authentication now comes standard on Coinbase. So when you're registering for an account 2FA will automatically be set up. However, if you were to change cell numbers you may want to authorize a different number. This guide will show you how.

1. Hover over your user name click “Your Profile” and then click “Security.”

2. Click “Verify A Phone” Then choose a country, enter your phone number, and click “Verify Phone Number.”

3. You should now get an SMS (text) message with instructions.

4. Enter the code and click “Verify.”

5. Having a verified phone number means two-factor authentication is now enabled. The next time you sign in, you’ll be prompted to enter a pin code from your phone.
