How to Turn On 2FA for Skrill

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.

The new Skrill security tool is working with Google Authenticator. Once it is set up, Skrill customers do not have to use their physical security token anymore, but will enter a changing 6 digit code generated with the Google Authenticator app.

1. If you already use a Security Token you have to deactivate it in your account settings.

2. After that you will find the option to enable the 2FA in your account settings.

3. Install the Google Authenticator app from the Apple app store or Google Play store and scan the QR bar-code displayed to you on the setup screen.

4. Inside the setup window enter the code displayed by the Google Authenticator app and click the ‘Verify and save‘ button to navigate to the success screen.

5. Whenever you sign into your Skrill account or make a payment on a merchant site, you will now be asked for the Skrill two-step authentication code and you will enjoy an even higher level of security at Skrill.
