3. Run Google Authenticator on your device and scan the QR code that was generated. Google Authenticator will generate one-time passwords for your BTC-e account every 30 seconds from now on.

4. Enter this one-time password in the Security section of your BTC-e profile here You will have to enter the password each time when you log in and/or deposit or withdraw money from your account.

5. To avoid locking yourself out of your BTC-e account, make sure you back up your QR codes. It’s best to copy your QR code, private key, and the 32-Base Private key to an external device such as a USB flash disk.
