Enabling Two-Factor Authentication on your account is simple. Just go to the Security tab in your Betterment account settings and click “Set up Two-Factor Authentication” in the section “Two-Factor Authentication.”

If you’d like to set up with SMS authentication, you’ll be asked for your cell phone number to complete set up.

If you’d like to set up with a mobile authenticator application, such as Authy or Google Authenticator, we’ll give you a QR code to scan from your authenticator app to set it up.

You may set up Two-Factor Authentication for both SMS and a mobile authenticator application.
