Before you set up two-step verification for your My F-Secure account:
  • Install an authentication app, such as Google Authenticator or Duo Mobile on your mobile device.
  • Make sure your mobile device can read QR codes.

We recommend that you use either a PC or Mac to set up this feature.

  1. Log in to My F-Secure with your account username and password.
  2. Once logged in, select <your name> > Account settings, and then select F-Secure account settings.
  3. Next to the 2-Step Verification status, select Change.

    Note: If you have recently created a My F-Secure account, you first need to confirm your account by clicking on the confirmation link sent to you by email.

  4. Click on Set up.
  5. Link your My F-Secure account to the mobile authentication app.
    1. Open up the app on your mobile device.
    2. Scan the QR code on the screen or enter a security code in the app manually. You can find the security code by clicking on Show code.
  6. Generate a code using the authentication app, and enter it in the empty field.
  7. Click Turn on.
You have now set up two-step authentication for your My F-Secure account.

Important: Save the recovery codes in case you cannot access the mobile authentication app to generate the codes.
