How to Turn On 2FA for Metaname

Please note: Specific instructions for enabling 2FA are subject to change without notice. Please check with each website or app for the most up-to-date information on this feature.

Two-step verification helps protect your Metaname account by making it more difficult for someone else to sign in. It uses something you know (like a password) and something only you have (your phone or tablet) as a layered sign in to your account. This protects your privacy and security in an easy and convenient way.

1. Sign in to your account as you normally do, and go to your account Settings.

2. Ensure that the phone number box shows the mobile phone number with which you would like to authenticate. Click the two-factor authentication box.

3. Scroll down and press Save Changes. A code will be sent to this number the next time you log in.

Important: Don’t sign out until you have received the 2FA confirmation SMS, after which you know that our record of your phone number is correct.


4. Sign out. Two-factor authentication is enabled.

When next you sign in, a single-use code will be sent to your mobile phone. You will need to input the code in order to complete the sign-in process. The code is not case-sensitive.

If you have any difficulty signing into an account that has been protected with two-factor authentication then please call the support team at metaname. Be prepared to prove that you are the owner of the account.
