Skrill Security: Free Two-step Authentication published

New Skrill Security Tool for FREE: Two-step Authentication

A couple of months ago NETELLER introduced the Two-step Authentication to their customers to increase the account security. Now it is also available on Skrill!

Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, is an extra layer of security that is known as “multi factor authentication” that requires not only a password and username but also something that only that user has on them – such as a physical token.

The new Skrill security tool is working with the free app Google Authenticator. Once it is set up, Skrill customers do not have to use their physical security token anymore, but will enter a changing 6digit code generated with the Google Authenticator app. If you already use a Security Token you have to deactivate it in your account settings. After that you will find the option to enable the 2FA in your account settings:
