How do I set up my Two-factor Authentication (2FA) using Google Authenticator (GA)?


Google Authenticator (GA) is a dynamic password tool that Google built to provide its users with a stronger security layer for their account. After you have successfully linked your UQUID account to the GA app, GA will generate a One-Time Password (OTP) every 30 seconds. This verification code can be used to login, withdrawal, and changing security settings to achieve maximum security for your UQUID account.

To link your UQUID account to your GA app, kindly refer to the steps as shown below: 

Step 1Log in to your UQUID account and Click on “Account” and then click “My Account”. Turn on SECURITY SETTINGS: 

Step 2 Download Google Authenticator (GA) onto phone by clicking on the respective download button links (iOS Users: Apple App Store /Android Users: Google Play)


Step 3
 Open the GA app on your mobile device, click the “+” icon and choose “Scan a barcode” or “Enter a provided key” to manually input the keywords. (This key will allow you to recover your Google Authentication in case of phone loss) 

Step 4  Please save backup key code on paper. This key allows you to recover your Google Authentication in case of phone loss/New phone. Click on "Next Step".



Step 5 Input UQUID Login Password and the new 6-digit GA Code generated into the text field (GA code changes every 30 seconds) 


Step 6 Click the “Enable 2FA” button to complete the verification.
