Setting up Two-Step Verification with Google Authenticator

Last Updated: Oct 29, 2018

Google Authenticator is a two-step authenticator which offers an additional security layer on top of your username-password combination. With two-step verification, a code generated by the Google Authenticator app must be entered while signing in, in addition to your account username and password. This ensures only the people with the installed app/code. Once you download the app, you can add it to your account:

 

  1. Log in to your Name.com account.
  2. Click on the ACCOUNT tab, located at the top, select PROFILE and then select ACCOUNT SETTINGS.
  3. Click Two-Step Verification located in the left column under SecurityScreen_Shot_2018-10-29_at_10.38.53_AM.png
