To enable Two-Factor Authentication via a Verification App (Authy or Google Authenticator), follow these steps:

1. Click on Password and Security within your profile menu.

2. Click on "Change" next to Two-step verification

3. Click on "ENABLE" next to Verification code via app

4. A QR Code will then be presented which you can scan with your phone using the Authentication app you like to use.

A code will be generated in your app which you will enter into the "Verification Code" section below.

5. Backup Codes will be provided.

Be sure to save these codes in a secure area on your computer so that they can be used to access your account should you lose your phone (with the Authentication app installed)

If you forget to copy the codes, they will be available within your account, but remember, you won't be able to access them if you can't log in, so be sure to record them.

Next time you log into Computer Forensics World Forum, you will be requested to enter the code found within your authorization app.

If you need to use your backup codes, click on the "Backup Codes" tab. You can then enter one of the codes you recorded previously.

You can set up both the Verification App and Email Confirmation at the same time.
But please be aware that you will ONLY need to enter one two-factor authorization code to gain access to the site.
At login, you can choose which one to use.
