In order to keep your account secure, we suggest that you set up two-step verification on your account. Essentially, this will check that you are the owner of the account twice; the first time will be via your password, and the second time via an app (something like Authy or Google Authenticator) or via email.

You can go directly to the two-step verification process via this link, but I'll walk you through it too.

To set up two-step verification, click on your username in the top right corner and click on 'Password and security':

You will then be taken to this screen, where you can click 'Enable' to set up verification via an app:

You will be prompted to confirm your password. Enter your password and click 'Confirm':

You will then be taken to a screen with a QR code:

Use Authy or Google Authenticator (or equivalent) to scan the QR code. The app will then generate a verification code that you will need to type into the box at the bottom. Then click 'Confirm'.

You will be taken back to this screen, where you can now enable email confirmation:

You will then be taken to this screen:

Enter the code that is emailed to you and click 'Confirm'.

And finally, we recommend you copy your backup codes, just in case you lose access to your phone or authenticator app. When you are taken back to this screen, click 'Manage' and save your backup codes somewhere safe:

Should you ever lose access to your account entirely, you can contact support and, once we have confirmed that you are the owner of the account, we will help you regain access.
